Mission and Goals: Coordinated Program

We prepare students to be leaders in their field and to fulfill prominent and varied professional roles.

Recognizing the role of the Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) as the nutrition expert and the key role that nutrition plays in health and well-being, the Coordinated Program strives to serve the community by providing students with the knowledge, skills, and experience to meet the challenges of the diverse and changing field of dietetics. Our intent is to prepare entry-level registered dietitian nutritionists who will become leaders in their field and will fulfill prominent and varied professional roles.

The Coordinated Program supports the principles of academic excellence, service to others, and lifelong learning by fostering the student’s professional and personal growth within a broad range of educational and practical experiences.
