Dr. Michelle Schroeder-Moreno is a Professor in the Department of Crop & Soil Sciences at North Carolina (NC) State University. She graduated from the University of California (UC) Irvine with a B.S. in Applied Ecology and from the University of Miami with a Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, focused on agroecology.

Dr. Schroeder-Moreno joined the Crop & Soil Sciences faculty at North Carolina (NC) State University in 2004 to develop new agroecology classes.  Over the past 16 years at NC State, she developed new agroecology courses, curricular programs, internships, study abroad and service learning experiences, and established a multidisciplinary undergraduate major, Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems. As a way to engage students in hands-on learning outside the classroom, Dr. Schroeder-Moreno also developed the 6 acre Agroecology Education Farm that brings together a unique group of faculty, students, campus chefs and community to teach, learn and grow food for NC State cafeterias, making NC State “Think and Do” mission evident.  Whether online, in the classroom, or in the field, experiential learning is core to her teaching and she is highly regarded among students for her enthusiasm, approachability and genuine care, counseling them professionally and in life.  Over the course of her career, Schroeder-Moreno has taught more than 1,400 undergraduate students and mentored numerous graduate students and undergraduate students in research. She has published various peer-review articles than span broad topics from research in active student-centered learning to sustainable strawberry production and has been PI/co-PS on grants totaling nearly $7 million

Dr. Schroeder-Moreno was one of the founding members of the national Sustainable Agriculture Education Association (SAEA) helping to elevate agroecology as a discipline. She served in various SAEA leadership positions, including Chair and co-hosted the National SAEA Conference.  Dr. Schroeder-Moreno also serves as the Assistant Director of Educational Programs at the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS), a 2,000-acre facility focused on sustainable agriculture research, education and extension in North Carolina. Dr. Schroeder-Moreno is recognized for her outstanding efforts in teaching and was awarded the Teacher Fellow Award from North America College Teachers of Agriculture (NACTA) in 2014, the NC State Alumni Distinguished Undergraduate Professor Award in 2016, the APLU/USDA Excellence in Teaching National Award in 2019 and was the recipient of a Fulbright Scholar in Croatia.
