Dr. Schultz joins WCU after two “gap years” during which he had the fortune of being a youth development and community recreation specialist (i.e., stay-at-home dad) for his two young boys. Prior to this, Dr. Schultz was a member of the Eastern Washington University community where he was an assistant professor and program coordinator for their Recreation & Tourism Management degree. His passions revolve around communicating the value of leisure in society through experiential, critical, community-based classrooms. Having personal pursuits based mostly in natural resource recreation, Dr. Schultz is continually an academic and community advocate for conservation and recreation in the outdoors. Outside of academia, Jeremy also enjoys everything food—growing, harvesting, preserving, reading, photographing, and especially eating it.
