MEET MATT SCHULTE
Is a Trustworthy Public Servant in Lincoln
Matt Schulte has given his life to serving people. Since his graduation from college he has led in several nonprofits. Currently he serves as the Executive Director of Campus Life, a nonprofit that has sought the welfare of students in Lincoln's public schools for more than 50 years.
Matt and Kristin Schulte have been married for 14 years and have four children. Matt was born in Lincoln and like so many Nebraskans, left the state after high school graduation. He received his bachelor's degree from liberal arts school John Brown University, and later earned a Master of Science degree in Nonprofit Management and Leadership from Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies. He returned to Lincoln in 2010 with his family to lead the Youth for Christ/Campus Life team and to raise his children in the strong family values of Lincoln.
Matt's knack for business systems led him to open Nonprofit Shared Services LLC. Shared Services provides bookkeeping and accounting services for small and medium sized nonprofits.
Matt has been a strong, consistent community leader. In addition to serving as the Executive Director at Campus Life, he pioneered a partnership with the juvenile prison and detention facility to come alongside jailed teens. He was appointed to the ServeNebraska commission by then-Governor Heineman, where Matt served as the Vice Chair until his election to the Lincoln Public Schools Board of Education in 2015.
Matt was elected to LPS's school board in 2015. In that role Matt has helped to develop the $420 million dollar budget, advocated for foresight in the acquisition of land for future schools, pushed for innovative thinking for Lincoln's next high school, and has stood as a voice of reason.
