SUNY Oneonta

Chair's Welcome


Dr. William R. Proulx, Ph.D., R.D., ChairWelcome to the Department of Human Ecology. As an alumna of the SUNY Oneonta dietetics program, I can personally attest to the quality of our programs and our tradition of excellence in preparing human ecology students for success.

Our faculty are frequently recognized for excellence in teaching, leadership in their respective fields, and commitment to our students. Though our department is one of the college's largest, we offer a warm, close-knit environment, where faculty get to know and care about their students.

All five of our academic programs have a pre-professional focus, and we strive to help students gain valuable practice experience in areas related to their career objectives. Our courses frequently include hands-on activities, and a wide variety of internship opportunities are available.

I'm thrilled that you've included SUNY Oneonta in your college search, and I invite you to contact me if you have any questions about our programs.

Dr. Jennifer Bueche, R.D., C.D.N., Department Chair
