I am delighted to inform the School of Community Health and Policy and the Morgan community of the decision of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) regarding the re-accreditation of the Nutritional Sciences Program.
At their recent meeting, ACEND granted re-accreditation of the Nutritional Sciences Program for another 10 years.
Sincere gratitude is given to all who assisted in the preparation for re-accreditation: faculty, staff, administrators, students, advisory board members and committee members.
Again, thank you very much for your support, advice and assistance.
