This community features research by the School of Food Science at Washington State University. The first food science program at the university was established in the 1960s to be reach across departments. This program became the Department of Food Science and Technology in 1970. The College of Agriculture and Home Economics was established in 1982 by the merger of the two parent colleges (College of Agriculture and the College of Home Economics). In 1983, the departments of Human Nutrition and Foods and Food Science and Technology combined to create the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition (FSHN). In 2007, the human nutrition and dietetics faculty and programs in FSHN moved to WSU’s new Division of Health Sciences under the College of Pharmacy, paving the way for the proposed formation of the bi-state School of Food Science (SFS).
