"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."
-John Quincy Adams
40 Years of Giving Leaves a Lasting Impact
Mother’s Memory Will Be Honored for Generations
Professor Jackson Baty ’68 M.A. retired in 1987 and definitely left a significant and lasting impact on the University of Northern Iowa and our students. His work with UNI Greek activities and his assistance with the Northern Iowan student newspaper are highly praised.
Jack is remembered for his thoughtful and professional critiques of the newspaper, his support of the staff, and the time that he and his dear departed wife, Jeanette, shared with students in their Cedar Falls home and their summer home in McGregor.
Forty years of continuous giving speaks loudly of Jack’s commitment to UNI and our students. He may have retired from teaching, but his name will always be associated with UNI through his legacy gift of an endowed scholarship. Each year when the Emma Jackson Baty Journalism Endowed Scholarship is awarded, the memory of Jack’s mother will be honored, and a UNI student will be inspired to achieve his or her dream.
Jack also has an estate gift designated for the Faculty and Alumni Educational Psychology Endowment. In addition, he is a member of the Panther Scholarship Club and a Friend of Gallagher- Bluedorn Performing Arts Center.
In 2013, Jack received the Faculty and Staff Philanthropy Award for his philanthropic support, dedicated longterm service and creative leadership to the University of Northern Iowa. He is professor emeritus in educational psychology and foundations (1971–87).
Upon Jack’s retirement, Lyn Olson, 1985–86 managing editor of the Northern Iowan said, “The genuine concern Jack and Jeanette have shown for the Northern Iowan and the students who work there has been an inspiration for many. Jackson has been a model for me (and others, I dare say) to look up to and admire.” (Northern Iowan, May 8, 1987).
