Jeremy Jackson

Jackson was nominated by William Nganje, chair of agribusiness and applied economics. He praised Jackson’s leadership of the Center for the Study of Public Choice and Private Enterprise and his vision in creating the Mancur Olson Scholars and Mancur Olson Fellows programs.

Nganje points out that even before the pandemic Jackson used Tegrity lecture recording software in his Intermediate Microeconomics course.

“Dr. Jackson has also been an innovator in course development. He has created two completely new undergraduate courses at NDSU: Game Theory and Market Values,” Nganje wrote. “Dr. Jackson’s Game Theory class has become one of the highest enrollment economics elective courses. He teaches this class with an innovative set of classroom experiments which help make the course content come alive.”

Jackson said he has integrated technology to improve course accessibility, incorporated techniques he learned from pedagogical training and included experiential and learning activities in his courses.

“I am not a person who remains stagnant. I am constantly searching for opportunities to innovate, create and improve,” Jackson said. “During my time at NDSU, I have worked to improve my own delivery and teaching of classes and I have transformed economics from a programmatic and curricular standpoint.”

Jackson earned his bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, and his master’s and doctoral degrees in economics from Washington University in St. Louis.
