Elizabeth Jackson is the Acting Director of the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute (CESI) at the University of Guelph. She builds on her research and teaching expertise in community engaged scholarship, practice-based research, and interdisciplinary approaches to social justice to facilitate mutually beneficial community-university partnerships and foster meaningful engagement between faculty, students and community. Her work in non-profit, activist, and academic contexts has addressed a range of inter-connected themes—including environmental justice, human rights, the politics and implications of artistic representation, the ways we think about time, and the relationships between formal education and broader social realities—all of which inform her commitment to ethical and sustained engagement with communities.
