Edward Jackson is a Senior Research Fellow at the Carleton Centre for Community Innovation. He previously served as founding Director and Chair of the Centre as well as Associate Dean (Research and Graduate Affairs) in the Faculty of Public Affairs. He is also Adjunct Research Professor in the School of Public Policy and Administration and is cross-appointed to the Institute of African Studies.

His teaching and research interests have included program management, program evaluation, community-university partnerships, local governance, regional economic development, social enterprise and social finance and impact investing. With the Centre, he has led research projects evaluating the microloan program of Alterna Savings and Credit Union and investigating the role of post-secondary institutions in Eastern Ontario in advancing inclusive and sustainable regional economic development.

Professor Jackson also served as founding Principal Investigator (2011-2014) of the Community First: Impacts of Community Engagement project, a seven-year, SSHRC-funded initiative examining how campus-community partnerships can be designed to be of optimum benefit to community-based non-profit organizations in the fields of poverty reduction, food security, the environment and violence against women. The project network serves over 300 engaged scholars and students and civil society practitioners working across seven Canadian provinces.

In 1997, he co-founded, with the J. W. McConnell Family Foundation, the Community Economic Development Technical Assistance Program, a pan-Canadian technical- assistance and action-research initiative that made 500 grants to local groups across the country through 2008. CEDTAP was also supported by Assiniboine Credit Union, Bell Canada, the Government of Canada, Ontario Trillium Foundation, Power Corporation and the Royal Bank of Canada, among others. In 2001, he co-founded the Carleton University–World Bank International Program for Development Evaluation Training. In 2013, he co-founded the Better Futures Network, a Brazil-based network on livelihoods, citizenship, communities and universities, as well as the multidisciplinary Gender Equality Measurement Group, based at Carleton University.  In 2015, Professor Jackson served as Convenor of the 2015 Community, College and University Exposition, or C2UExpo 2015, a conference that attracted 300 delegates from a dozen countries.

Dr. Jackson has served as an advisor to Canadian Labour Congress, Denmark’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Global Affairs Canada, IDRC, the Master Card Foundation, the McConnell Foundation, the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation, SSHRC, the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation, UNICEF, the World Bank and many other non-profit, philanthropic, educational, business, labour and government organizations. A member of the CIRIEC International Scientific Commission on the Social and Cooperative Economy, he also serves on the editorial advisory board of the Journal of Sustainable Finance and Investment, and the Steering Committee of the McLeod Group, a foreign policy think tank.  A former visiting lecturer at Trent, Victoria and Warsaw universities, Professor Jackson holds honorary appointments at the University of Ottawa and the Institute of Development Studies in the UK.

Edward Jackson has received the Karl Boudreault Award for Leadership in Evaluation, the Canadian Evaluation Society Award for Contribution to Evaluation in Canada, Carleton University’s Faculty of Public Affairs Teaching Excellence Award and its Award for Contribution to the University, the Community Development Society’s Current Research Award, and the Ontario Medal for Good Citizenship.
