Greetings from Food Science and Human Nutrition!
I am writing this newsletter in the middle of a snowstorm during one of the coldest winters in Michigan that I can remember. The “spring” semester seems like a misnomer indeed!
I continue to be amazed and excited by the terrific productivity of our faculty and staff, and the excellence of our students. This was borne out by a recent metrics-based self-study that was designed to objectively evaluate the quality of our teaching, research and outreach programs.
Here are a few excerpts:
I hope that this newsletter demonstrates that FSHN is a national leader in addressing three critically important interconnected societal issues: food, nutrition and health. Our faculty members, academic and support staff members, and students are passionate about our mission and proud of the contributions we have been able to make thus far, and we have many new ideas about how food and nutrition can contribute to improve the health of all people.
Chair, Food Science & Human Nutrition
