Higher Education Division

Chair: Marissa Burgermaster, PhD
Chair Elect: Mallory Koenings, PhD, RDN

The goal of the division is to provide individuals who teach nutrition in post-secondary settings the opportunity to network, share methodology, and research perspectives, and to stimulate research to improve the effectiveness of teaching. This goal is met through activities such as giving awards to students for outstanding research, sharing of curriculum ideas and materials, publishing a newsletter, and contributing to program ideas and speakers for the Annual Conference. Members represent a broad spectrum of programs that educate students, provide nutrition education services, and conduct nutrition education-related research.
