COLLEGE OF FAMILY AND CONSUMER SCIENCES MERGES THREE DEPARTMENTS

AMES, Iowa -- Three departments in Iowa State University's College of Family and Consumer Sciences have merged into the department of apparel, educational studies and hospitality management.

The new department was created with the merger of the former departments of textiles and clothing; hotel, restaurant and institution management; and family and consumer sciences education and studies. Each curriculum will remain separate.

The new department has nearly 550 undergraduates and 70 graduate students. The merger will enhance teaching programs and create more opportunities for cross-disciplinary research, said Mary Gregoire, department chair.

The merger was recently approved by the Board of Regents, State of Iowa.
