Women in Prominent Positions: Dr. Jackie Caul

Posted by iusbvision on October 25, 2006

Jackie Caul serves IUSB as the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management. Her devotion for women’s rights are indeed evident when you look at her past. She attended the University of Michigan, also attending the University of Keele in Great Britain through their international studies program.

Caul spoke highly of her foreign exchange experience. “I encourage all students to take advantage of international study programs if at all possible. My experience expanded my world view, fueled my interest in learning more about other cultures, and gave me the opportunity to meet, live with, and develop important friendships with British students attending the university.”  

After graduating from the University of Michigan, she taught middle school at the same time as attending Michigan state University for her Master’s degree in education with a focus on Curriculum development. She earned a Ph.D. from Michigan State University in 1975, only the third woman to do so at her college.

Caul knows the importance of that achievement. “Fortunately, since that time, more and more women have entered and been successful in administrative positions in higher education and other professions. As a result of being the “lone woman” in many of my early educational and professional experiences, I am dedicated to encouraging women to challenge perceived roadblocks to their personal growth.”

Caul has served many positions at IUSB, including Director of Off-Campus programs, Acting Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, and handfuls of other positions.  As the current Vice chancellor for student Affairs and Enrollment management, Caul works with various people within the school. “I provide leadership, management, and administrative direction to student and enrollment services and athletics and recreation programs; including the offices of admissions, financial aid, the registrar, student scholarships, international student services, disabled student services, minority enhancement, campus diversity, career services, academic learning services, student life, athletics and recreation and other student support services such as new student placement testing and orientation. I serve as a member of the chancellor’s cabinet and provide leadership to university-wide enrollment management efforts” Caul said.

Caul has an excellent support system to allow for her difficult job requirements. She pointed out all of the programs IUSB offers for students who face difficulties, including child care, night classes, and extended tutoring hours. All of these programs are made to help with the advancement of education for all people, especially women with children.
