Jacqueline Smith

Jacqueline helps to shape and realize ASU President Michael Crow's New American University vision to transform higher education through institutional innovation. She designs and launches initiatives that support institutional priorities such as social embeddedness and social entrepreneurship. Since her arrival to ASU in 2009, Jacqueline has led efforts to embed changemaking into the student identity. Recent projects to support this objective include The MasterCard Foundation Scholars Program at ASU, a leadership-scholarship program for talented, yet underprivileged young people from Sub-Saharan Africa and Changemaker Central, a co-working and collaboration space with locations on all four of ASU’s campuses that makes direct service, service learning, entrepreneurship, and high-impact careers more accessible and inviting to students. She also cultivates early-career higher education professionals through a one-year university innovation fellowship. Jacqueline earned her bachelor’s degree in mathematics and economics and law degree from Georgetown University.
