Louise E. Jackson

University Career Center

As the Director of the University Career Center, I am deeply passionate about empowering students through higher education and career development support. I have had the privilege of working with institutions such as the University of California system and the University of Michigan's Alumni Association, where I served the 650,000-strong alumni community. This experience has allowed me to gain valuable insights into the diverse needs and aspirations of students and alumni alike. I earned a master's degree in higher education from the School of Education in 2010. In addition, I also hold certifications in both the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0. On a personal note, I hail from South Africa, a background that contributed to my commitment to diversity and inclusivity in higher education, in particular how career development and higher education integration can really change lives. I'm genuinely committed to making a positive impact on the University of Michigan's student's educational journeys and career aspirations. Please don't hesitate to reach out to me or our amazing team for support on your own career journey.
