Two-minute interview

Like Ted Jackson, you too can be profiled in a future issue of Carleton Now. We’re pleased to put the spotlight on the University’s dedicated faculty and staff who make Canada’s Capital University an outstanding place to learn and work.

Name: Ted Jackson

Title: Associate Professor

Department: School of Public Policy and Administration

Years of service: 13

Are you a Carleton graduate? No, but I was born in Ottawa and, in my early years, was raised half a kilometre from the campus.

What do you do at the University and why is it important?

I teach and supervise graduate students in the School’s development stream. The world needs smart, action-oriented publicsector and non-profit leaders with the tools to deal with complex, globalized issues. We help build the next generation of these leaders.

What is it about your job that inspires you?

Dean Katherine Graham’s leadership and outreach are inspirational; so is my colleagues’ world-class expertise in everything from climate change to tax policy. And when students make breakthroughs in their analysis, and deepen their connections with communities— that’s very exciting.

What are your hobbies?

My wife, Magda, and I keep trying to understand the world of our two teenage sons—from XBox 360 to Def Jam! Weight training, poetry, travel and raising funds to fight conflict diamonds in Africa are some of my interests.
