We Invite you to Share Your Feedback
We rely on students to provide feedback related to experiences they have had in our school whether negative, positive or neutral. There are a variety of mechanisms for you to share this feedback so that you can select a method that is most comfortable for you. You should receive a response to a complaint within 3 business days. Response time may be delayed due to holidays, weekends, or university closure. If you do not receive a response within 3 days, it is recommended that you send your complaint directly to the Department Head.
Schedule a meeting to share your concerns or leave anonymous feedback on the Teacher Course Evaluation which takes place at the end of the semester.

School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness Diversity and Inclusion Committee
Our Committee’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: We recognize that representation, validation and empowerment are foundational to a strong academic culture and that barriers impeding inclusion in, or access to, education must be identified and addressed. The Diversity & Inclusion Committee of the School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness will work to address the historic systems of oppression and discrimination that continue to harm minoritized groups through intentional curricular, co-curricular, recruitment, support and engagement initiatives that foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment where our full community can learn and thrive.
We seek to create a vibrant, action-oriented, engaged School with the expectation that everyone will contribute towards individual and collective inclusive excellence. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are core values for the University of Arizona School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness, and offer a competitive advantage in attracting faculty, staff, students and their partners. Moreover, diversity allows our School to prepare students to be leaders in nutrition, healthcare, and Dietetics as we critically examine current models of health, wellness, and nutrition.
Our Committee’s Statement on Racial Equity and Nutritional Sciences: Political determinants of health such as housing, transportation, food security, and access to safe places to be physically active affect quality of life and health outcomes. We acknowledge the systemic racism that has produced both unjust food and economic systems that influence these social determinants of health. Our committee aims to prepare the future leaders in Dietetics to understand the historical context of nutritional guidance and the harm that it has caused communities of color. We celebrate racial and ethnic foodways to support the development of more meaningful relationships with food that encompass social and cultural factors, as well as their nutritional value.
Our Committee’s Mission & Goals
- Create systems of accountability for faculty, staff and students to uphold equity and inclusion principles, and to address harm that may be caused through systems of oppression such as racism.
- Support and guide hiring efforts to increase the number of Black, Indigenous, Latino, and other People of Color (POC) and people from historically under-represented groups faculty and staff
- Increase recruitment, retention efforts and support to increase the number of students from historically under-represented groups, and support environments where they feel welcomed to thrive in the School of Nutritional Sciences and Wellness.
