The Family & Consumer Sciences Department provides knowledge and skills that will enhance the well-being and quality of life for individuals, families and communities.
We strive to foster healthy relationships between people and their diverse environments, focusing on the integration of physical, biological, cultural, economic and social influences on human behavior, lifespan development, and health. These relationships are examined in the context of clothing and fashion, nutrition and food, family life, and resource management.
