Many people today, especially college students, love stereos. Southeast economics professor Bruce Domazlicky is a sound system aficionado himself. In the classroom, he enjoys teaching the fundamentals of economics. At home, his favorite pastime is collecting and restoring antique radios. Domazlicky says he enjoys this hobby because it challenges his problem-solving skills.
When he isn’t up to his elbows in transistors and vacuum tubes, Dr. Domazlicky enjoys the great outdoors and frequently visits Yellowstone National Park.
“I have been to Yellowstone half a dozen times and always feel like the first explorers didᾰthat it is a wondrous place that is hard to imagine without seeing it,” he said.
Interestingly, Dr. Domazlicky completed his doctoral studies at the University of Wyoming, not far from Yellowstone.
Dr. Domazlicky has taught at Southeast for nearly 19 years. His style in the classroom is structured, but Domazlicky keeps the atmosphere casual, encouraging students to become involved in discussions. Dr. Domazlicky is also the faculty advisor of the Southeast chapter of Omicron Delta Epsilon, the international honor society of economics.
Dr. Domazlicky has an outstanding record in his field, having been published many
times in national peer-reviewed journals. In addition, he is closely involved with
ongoing research in the region as director of the Center for Economic and Business
Research. Domazlicky serves the public by regularly completing special economic impact
and benefit cost studies and publishing the quarterly Southeast Missouri Business Indicators.
