• Family and Consumer Science Education motivates individuals and families throughout their life to manage the challenges of living and working in a diverse society. Some of the challenges they may face include balancing personal, home, family and work lives; promoting optimal nutrition and wellness; and managing resources to meet the material needs of individuals and families. Family and consumer sciences can give individuals the practical knowledge to address problems in the diverse family, career, and community environments.
