The Family and Consumer Studies Department has an interdisciplinary orientation with research conducted by the faculty focusing on expanding the understanding of how the welfare of individuals and the families in which they live are affected by internal and external forces. As such, the Department emphasizes applied social science research with a strong emphasis on a public policy orientation.

Our faculty also has a long history of service within both academia and the community at-large. Faculty are currently involved in a number of service activities that we believe enhance our teaching and research, and the quality of life within the state more generally.
