Community & Technical College transitions Dietetics and Nutrition programs to College of Health

The Dietetics and Nutrition programs will move from the UAA Community & Technical College (CTC) to the UAA College of Health (COH) effective July 1, 2015.

“After many in-depth conversations between college leadership, I believe this decision is in the best interest of students because it gives them greater access to all health-related academic resources and research on campus,” said Bonnie Nygard, CTC interim dean.

Amanda Walch, an assistant professor in the Dietetics program, leads a seminar on current issues in dietetics community nutrition and foodservice administration. The bachelor's degree in dietetics allows students to begin the rigorous requirements to become a registered dietitian.

The primary reason for this change is one of mission alignment. The Dietetics and Nutrition programs dovetail with those currently offered by the College of Health, especially as COH places an increasing emphasis on preparing professionals to meet the health needs of Alaskans.

“We look forward to having students and faculty in the Dietetics and Nutrition programs join us in the College of Health next fall,” said COH Dean William Hogan. “Our aim is to develop professionals who help foster the well-being of all Alaskans, and dietetics and nutrition professionals play an important role in that effort.”

Most of the changes will take place behind the scenes and will not impact students directly. No program or curriculum changes are taking place at this time, and the registration process for classes has remained the same.

Current students should direct questions to Dietetics and Nutrition faculty advisors Carrie King at (907) 786-6597 and Kendra Sticka at (907) 786-4935. Prospective students are encouraged to contact Carey Brown at (907) 786-4417.
