Dr. Misti Sharp

Instructional Associate Professor & Undergraduate Coordinator


Misti Sharp joined the faculty in fall 2016. She earned her Ph.D. from Colorado State University, focusing on water institutions for water conservation. Current research relates to both resource issues and issues in teaching. She has taught a myriad of classes in FRE including a study abroad in Germany and is always looking for the next challenge!

Teaching Philosophy

I believe that the best learning is achieved when students can engage with the material in a variety of ways. Students should be given ample opportunities to actively apply concepts learned through reading and classroom lectures using platforms prevalent both in academia and the real-world. The value of an economist and of a student in economics is the ability to synthesize qualitative and quantitative information to inform decision-making. As a lecturer at the University of Florida, I will strive to remain flexible to meet the needs of students while providing structure and tools necessary for students to make sound economic decisions inside and outside of the classroom.
