Welcome to The Division of Nutrition

Division of Nutrition

The Division of Nutrition at the University of Utah is an academic unit within the College of Health, which is currently one of the largest colleges at the University of Utah, and serves over 2000 undergraduate and graduate students. The Division supports the mission and vision of the Health Sciences Center and the University of Utah through excellence in education, research, clinical services and community outreach.  The Division is an exciting place to learn about the breadth of the field of nutrition, prepare for a career as a health professional, and participate in community action to improve nutrition for all.  Faculty members are nationally recognized scholars who are advancing the science of nutrition and how to translate these findings to individual and population behavior change that can improve quality of life and reduce health care costs.
