History

Biography:

Edward B. Jakubauskas was born on April 14, 1930 in Waterbury, Connecticut. He earned a B. A. and a M.A. in Economics from the University of Connecticut in 1952 and 1954, respectively. Jakubauskas later earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Wisconsin in 1965.

Jakubauskas’ career included work in the federal and educational sectors. He served in the U.S. Army, 1954-1956. From 1956 to 1958 Jakubauskas worked as an economist for the U.S Federal Power Commission and the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, D.C. He periodically taught Economics at Iowa State University and the University of Wisconsin, 1958-1971. Jakubauskas worked as the Director of Iowa State Manpower Development Council, part of the Office of the Governor of Iowa, 1965-1966, and as Director of the Industrial Relations Center at Iowa State University, 1966-1971. From 1971 to 1976 he served as Dean of the College of Commerce and Industry at the University of Wyoming (UW). In 1976 Jakubauskas became Vice President for Academic Affairs at UW, a position he held for three years. From 1978 to 1988 Jakubauskas served as President of the State University of New York at Genesco.

On March 3, 1988, the Central Michigan University (CMU) Board of Trustees appointed Jakubauskas as the tenth president of CMU. He was formally inaugurated on Nov. 17, 1988. During his tenure, CMU began offering its first competitive scholarships to attract top Michigan high school seniors and initiated a capital fund-raising campaign. He oversaw renewed emphasis on global education and the recruitment of minority students and faculty. Construction began on the Dow Science Complex, the Student Activity Center, Alumni House, Applied Business Studies Complex, and the Combined Services Building opened.

President Jakubauskas retired in January 1992.

With his wife, Ruth, President Jakubauskas had four children: Carol, Marilyn, Mark, and Eric. (This information is from the collection and the Office of the President website.)

Edward Jakubauskas died on October 30, 2013. (His obituary is included in his biographical information folder.)
