The GEDC was created in May 2008 at a meeting in Paris. The organization was encouraged by the International Federation of Engineering Education Societies and modeled after the Engineering Deans Council of the American Society for Engineering Education.  Galloway was elected in May 2009 by his national peers to a two-year term as chair of the Engineering Deans Council Executive Board.  As chair of the EDC Executive Board, Galloway also serves a two-year term on the Board of Directors of ASEE.

The GEDC serves as a global network of engineering deans who work for the advancement of engineering education and research.  The GEDC also provides opportunities for members to collaborate with industry, government and other stakeholders.

Currently the GEDC has members representing more than 30 countries.

Since 1996, Galloway has been dean of engineering and professor of electrical engineering at Vanderbilt.  Prior to that, he served as department chair of the electrical and computer engineering department and professor of ECE at the University of Arizona.  He has held professional appointments at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, the University of Maryland, the Naval Surface Warfare Center at Crane, and Indiana University.

Galloway is a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), and the American Physical Society (APS).  He has served as General Chairman of the IEEE Nuclear and Space Radiation Effects Conference (NSREC) and General Chairman of the IEEE International Electron Devices Meeting (IEDM).  In 2002, he received the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society Radiation Effects Award, and in 2007, he received the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society Richard F. Shea Distinguished Member Award.
