Professor Michael Schroeder is a Florida native, having grown up in the Tampa Bay area, graduating from Largo High School, and attending the University of Florida for his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Mathematics. He received his PhD in Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin - Madison, where he studied combinatorics and graph theory. Since then, he has been prolific in his study of graph decompositions, Latin squares, and other combinatorial phenomena. Professor Schroeder is a proponent of active learning in the classroom and, for several years, has administered flipped classrooms in his courses, where students complete group work and engage in collaborative exercises in class rather than receiving traditional lectures.
Before arriving at Stetson, he was a professor at Marshall University in West Virginia. During his time there, he sponsored several student research projects, many of which led to publications in prestigious journals. He also hosted an REU, organized multiple mathematics conferences, and frequently attended conferences, often traveling with students, both locally and internationally. In recent years he participated in the MAA- and NSF-sponsored PIC Math program, which seeks to increase the involvement of mathematics students and faculty in industrial projects originating from the community. In this capacity, Dr. Schroeder has successful collaborations with local municipalities, police departments, ambulance services, and hospitals; each collaboration involved students completing impactful, data-driven research projects.
