From Chicken Soup for the College Soul

Who Is Jack Canfield?

Jack Canfield is a bestselling author and one of America’s leading experts in the development of human potential. He is both a dynamic and entertaining speaker and a highly sought-after trainer with a wonderful ability to inform and inspire audiences to open their hearts, love more openly, and boldly pursue their dreams.

Jack spent his teenage years growing up in Martins Ferry, Ohio, and Wheeling, West Virginia, with his sister Kimberly (Kirberger) and his two brothers, Rick and Taylor. Jack won a scholarship to attend Harvard University, where he majored in Chinese history. Jack played intramural football and was a member of the Harvard rugby team. He was also a member of the SAE fraternity, where he was the social chairman and later the vice president of the chapter.

After graduating from Harvard, Jack pursued a masters degree and a doctorate in education at the University of Chicago and the University of Massachusetts. He taught undergraduate and graduate classes at U Mass, Hampshire College and the School for International Training. He later developed a graduate-education program for Beacon College in Massachusetts.

In recent years, Jack has focused most of his efforts on the empowerment of adult learners in both educational and corporate settings.
