We fulfill our mission by exploring ideas holistically. Diverse perspectives are vital to solving critical challenges, and we welcome all who are up to this great task. We support each of our students, faculty, and staff regardless of race, gender, ability, orientation, or identity.

We strive to foster an environment defined by diversity, inclusion, and openness. With new ideas, experiences, and perspectives constantly available to you, learn how our campus provides a space in which all students can succeed on their terms. 


Everyone brings different life experiences and goals to the study of food. Those experiences matter.


We work to create opportunity for everyone to succeed.


We value all our students, staff, faculty, and visitors as important members of our FSHN community.


We will create ways for our UIUC community to participate fully in our classes, labs, extracurriculars, and professional development activities.
