Mr. Schulte earned a Bachelor of Arts in Government from Berry College in Rome, Georgia, where he concentrated in political philosophy. Upon graduating, he participated in an academic fellowship at the John Jay Institute in Philadelphia, which aims to prepare principled leaders for faith-informed public service. After completing the academic portion of the fellowship, Mr. Schulte interned with the Georgia Center for Opportunity (GCO), a public policy think tank based in metro-Atlanta, that works to remove barriers to opportunity among Georgians through helping them to gain access to a quality education, find steady employment, and form healthy relationships. He became a research fellow for GCO’s Prisoner Reentry Initiative where he advocated for changes in laws and policies and identified community solutions that work to improve offenders’ successful reintegration into society.
