Dr. Jennifer Bueche, Associate Professor of Human Ecology/Dietetics, recently received the Pearson CITE 2014 Excellence in Online Administration Award. She is one of two national recipients of this competitive award, given to administrators of the most well-designed and -run online programs in higher education. Dr. Bueche, Director of the M.S. in Nutrition and Dietetics / Combined (online) Internship Program, was also lauded in September 2013 by the site-review team of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) for crafting a program on the “cutting edge of dietetics’ training,” that is “impacting the nation,” due in large part to its “fantastic director.” Pearson Education, Inc. will donate $1500 to a SUNY Oneonta scholarship fund in Dr. Bueche’s name. An awards ceremony honoring recipients will be held during the CITE conference in Ft. Worth, Texas, April 1-4 2014.
Oneonta senior Emily Harrington has received the New York State Dietetic Association 2013 Outstanding Dietetic Student Award (Didactic Programs).
