Family & Consumer Sciences logo
We are pleased to announce that the Department of Human Environmental Sciences will be changing its name to Family and consumer Sciences effective July 2014. The change in department name will align the department with the overarching national organization, American Association of Family and Consumer Sciences (AAFCS).  This is also most appropriate given the addition of two new undergraduate programs/degrees to the department: Bachelor of Science in Health Education and Promotion and Bachelor of Science in Family Policy and Advocacy. Given the addition of these two programs along with the long-standing programs of dietetics and family and consumer sciences with teacher certification,, the department name change will provide clarity of purpose to constituents both internal and external to the uniersity, to prospective students and other Family and Consumer Sciences professionals.  To kick-off the department name change, we invite you to join us for a celebration on June 27th, 2014 from 4:30-6:30 pm on the Fontbonne Campus.  Additional details will be forthcoming, but please mark your calendars to help us celebrate this retun to our roots. For more information, please contact Allison Edwards, Ed.D., Chair, Department of Human Environmental Sciences, at
