Dr. Jacqueline I. Lougheed made generous gifts to provide approximately $1,000-$2,000 annual awards to one or more master's*, education specialist or doctoral students pursuing graduate work in Educational Leadership. Students enrolled in one of these SEHS programs may apply. An award committee will select the awardee(s) based on exemplary student achievement, dedication to educational leadership, and personal and professional goals.

Jacqueline Lougheed joined Oakland University in 1968 after spending the first 15 years of her career in the Detroit Public Schools as a teacher and principal. She was the third woman in OU’s history to receive a full professorship. Dr. Lougheed received OU’s Teaching Excellence Award in 1994 and the Phyllis Law Googasian Award in 1995 for her many contributions to the advancement of women in higher education. In 2000, the School of Education and Human Services and her department honored her with a special lecture for her outstanding accomplishments. 

Dr. Lougheed’s dedication to education and teachers is evident throughout her career. She was instrumental in the development and evolution of the first master’s degree in the School of Education and Human Services. Between 1984 and 1999, Dr. Lougheed founded and directed OU’s Women in Leadership forum, assisting hundreds of women in their quest for leadership positions. From 1999 to 2001 she was the president of Alpha Delta Kappa, an organization representing more than 57,000 international women educators. Dr. Lougheed's commitment to the Educational Leadership department continues with the Jacqueline I. Lougheed Endowed Award.
