Designated as Human Environmental Sciences in 1987, the College evolved from the tradition and heritage of home economics. Courses were offered as early as the summer session of 1914, with a Department of Home Economics in the College of Arts and Sciences established by 1917. The division became the School of Home Economics in 1931; Agnes Ellen Harris, A.M., LL.D., was appointed the first dean. Actively engaged in the transmission, generation, and dissemination of knowledge, the College has three main objectives: (1) to provide students with the intellectual curiosity and professional competence needed for careers in business, industry, government agencies, health care, and education; (2) to provide for the general education and intellectual growth of students in other divisions; and (3) to contribute to the body of knowledge that is the foundation for continued enrichment of the educational experience.
