Biography

Dr. Schulz has been a member of the faculty at Eastern Michigan University since 2001. His primary professional interests are in the area of health risk behaviors (specifically those related to substance use) and social determinants of health as they relate to health disparities. Prior to his appointment at EMU, Dr. Schulz was a faculty member at Mississippi State University, where he was heavily involved with tobacco use prevention.

Dr. Schulz currently serves as the Director of the Office of Health Promotion where he works closely with graduate assistants to collaborate with other campus and community offices, agencies, and organizations to develop and implement wellness programming. He also serves as the faculty advisor for Students For Recovery, a student organization devoted to supporting the needs of university students in recovery from addiction.

In 2011, Professor Schulz was honored to receive the Everett L. Marshall Fellow Award for Excellence in Teaching from the College of Health and Human Services.
