From the Department Head
Dear Alumni and Friends,
On behalf of the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition, I hope you are healthy and happy. We are looking forward to the fall semester and a return to some semblance of normalcy. I hope you can take the time to peruse our newsletter. If you do, I am sure you will join me in my admiration for our faculty, staff, and students.
I will be retiring on June 30, 2021, and, therefore, want to thank all of you for your support of our department. Fortunately, Chris Melby will take over as interim department head through June 30, 2022, while we conduct a national search for new leadership (thanks, Chris!). Have a great summer, and remember, don’t confuse life and work. The second (work) is only part of the first (life).
Enjoy the newsletter!
