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 experientia
l, 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.
Critcal tourism studies through food, culture, and environment; ecotourism, sustainable
