Mission Statement

The Nutrition Graduate Student organization promotes camaraderie and professional development among graduate students in the Division of Nutritional Sciences. Although we share a common interest in nutrition, graduate students focus on different areas, including community nutrition, international nutrition, nutritional biochemistry and human nutrition.

The NGSO acts as a liaison between graduate students and the DNS faculty and administration. Toward this goal, various faculty committees include student representatives of the NGSO. The NGSO also organizes meetings between the graduate students and faculty members to address concerns.

The NGSO sponsors several events throughout the year such as the annual NGSO new student welcome party, outings to orchards and vineyards, an International Cooking Demonstration, a distinguished speaker event, a nutrition research symposium and interdepartmental gatherings.
