Mission, Visions and Goals

The mission of the Didactic Program in Dietetics (DPD) is to prepare students to become contributing and effective registered dietitians within the context of a liberal arts education encompassing values of ethical integrity, service, justice and peace. 

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics also has a vision statement clarifying the focus and context of the program within a liberal arts education: We offer current and relevant nutrition and food service information to our students while training them in the skills of research and nutrition counseling as well as providing professional experience. We teach our students to:

  • Show evidence of logical and critical thought, independent study, integration of knowledge, and appreciation of life-long learning
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively in a multicultural society, respecting diversity
  • Exhibit values of personal integrity and ethical conduct
  • Pass the Registration Examination for Registered Dietitians
