About Us

The Family and Consumer Sciences Mission is to provide leadership and support for professionals whose work assists individuals, families, and communities in making informed decisions about their well-being, relationships, and resources to achieve optimal quality of life.

Family and Consumer Sciences philosophy has a focal point to empower all individuals in promoting “success through equity” by means of “pride in excellence” and to engage learners in the challenges of becoming self-sufficient in a diverse global society. The heart of the profession “celebrates differences” and promotes the interrelationship of families and the world of work. This is accomplished through “honoring our past, inspiring our present, and securing our future”.
