Callie Spencer Schultz, Ph.D. is currently serving as Program Director and Assistant
Professor in Parks and Recreation Management and Assistant Professor in the M.S. Experiential
and Outdoor Education Program at WCU. Her classrooms concentrate on critical and poststructural
perspectives of leisure and the ways in which leisure both shapes and is shaped by
culture. At WCU she teaches courses focused on diversity & social justice, leadership
& group dynamics, research methods, social media, international travel & global citizenship,
and programing & evaluation. Dr. Schultz’s research interests include leisure and
new media, leisure and social justice, and the performance of subjectivities in transmedia
leisure spaces. Utilizing qualitative methodologies that trouble notions of traditional
epistemologies, her work aims to challenge us to think about “what counts” as leisure
scholarship. She has recently won a grant to purchase and facilitate the Missouri
Community Action Network's Poverty Simulation at WCU in partnership with Health &
PE faculty and the International Programs and Services Department. The simulation
encourages students to think critically about experiences of poverty and counter harmful
sterotypes, promoting empathy. Her team has facilitated the simulation for over 400
WCU students and counting. She has been nationally recognized as a future intellectual
leader in her field.
