Jackson Hammond 6 14 18
President, Central State University

Named the eighth president of Central State University in 2012, Dr. Cynthia Jackson-Hammond has established aggressive efforts to recruit and retain more academically prepared students and develop more fluid articulation agreements with community colleges and sister institutions, cost-saving cooperative agreements with area universities and improved communication with students, staff and alumni.

Before coming to Central State, Jackson-Hammond served as provost and vice president for academic affairs at Coppin State University. She was also a lead consultant for H&H Educational Consultants, specializing in strategic planning, curriculum design, accreditation and standards-based assessments.

She is well-known for her expertise in accreditation self-study, curriculum and program review and for her commitment to retention of males in higher education. She initiated a trademarked program called Real Men Teach, which supports the development of male students as teacher-leaders.

Jackson-Hammond received a doctorate degree in education from Grambling State University in dual cognate areas: curriculum and instruction and student personnel services, an Education Specialist degree in counseling education from the University of Louisiana-Monroe, a master’s degree in communications from the University of Louisiana-Monroe and a bachelor’s degree from Grambling State University. She is a graduate of the Harvard University Summer Institute for Educational Management, the Harvard Seminar for New Presidents, the American Association of State Colleges and Universities Millennium Leadership Institute, and a Fellow of the Nissan and the National Association for Equal Opportunity Leadership Institute for Academic Deans.
