Dr. Maggie Jackson

Dr. Maggie Jackson resides in Warrensville Heights, Ohio but grew up in Alabama and received a full scholarship to study Sociology at Northwestern College in Iowa. After receiving her bachelor’s degree, she pursued a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) at the University of Denver in Colorado. This provided the opportunity to work for the Denver County Department of Public Welfare, which allowed Jackson to work with students. She loved her work so much she pursed a Ph.D. in Social Work at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio. Following her Ph.D., Jackson became a professor at Cleveland State University in order to continue working with students. While there, she published two books and several journal articles. She also served as the Director of the School for Social Work for 18 years and received the Cleveland State University Distinguished Faculty Award for Service in 2010. Jackson is a faithful United Methodist, who served on the board for GBHEM for eight years. She served on the board of Global Ministries for eight years as well, taking the leadership role of Personnel Chair and as a current member of the Audit Committee. She was a four-time delegate to General Conference, President of UMW for the East Ohio Conference, VP of UMW for the North Central Jurisdiction, and VP of UMW Social Action at the national level. Furthermore, she served on the Board of Trustees with Africa University for fourteen years and recently had an endowed scholarship named in her honor. Jackson’s term of office as an elected director of The Fund will expire in 2024.
