The Department of Nutrition is thrilled to announce effective September, 2020, we were granted full ACEND accreditation for a novel Future Education Model Graduate Program that provides the opportunity for students to complete both a bachelor’s and master’s degree and earn the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) credential in just five years. To learn more, see the Future Education Model (FEM).

Our mission is to promote an understanding and practice of the science of nutrition for the enhancement of the physiological and social well-being of individuals, families, and communities, primarily through research and education.

Our vision is to achieve national recognition in academic excellence as a leading research and graduate program that prepares professionals to assume leadership roles in nutritional sciences, dietetics, and public health nutrition.
