Dr. Dean Gualco has taught at universities and colleges for over twenty years in such topics as leadership, ethics, management, organizational behavior, public administration, and education. He is the recipient of a Bachelors in Finance from California State University, Fresno, an M.B.A., a Masters in Public Administration from the University of Southern California, and a doctorate in Education from the University of the Pacific.
A 25-year veteran of the public sector, he has served as a human resource director and library director, including work at the University of California and the State of California. The multi-faceted Dr. Gualco is also the published author of eight books, including "The Good Manager: A Model for the 21st-Century Manager." He has received numerous book awards, including the coveted “Editor’s Choice” award from Barnes and Noble, and has appeared in over 200 nationally-published magazines, newspapers and media forums. His ninth book, titled, “Take the Right Road: Finding the Right Job, Being the Right Employee, and Becoming the Right Person,” is scheduled to be published in late 2018.
Teaching is one of Dr. Gualco's great passions. He believes that if we can educate the mind we can better the person, but if we can educate the soul we can better the world. Education can be this transformation event that creates a more moral, intellectual, and philosophical society, one that makes the right decisions at the right time and for the right reasons. He is honored to be part of that noble endeavor.
