Professor Schulz arrived at EMU in 2002. His research interest focuses largely upon youth risk behaviors, specifically those related to tattooing and body piercing, obesity and substance abuse. Much of his professional time is spent assisting local school districts with health and wellness related needs. Much of this work involves his students.
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.
