Culinary Sustainability and Hospitality Program Update

Dear Culinary Sustainability Majors:

As promised, I am following up with some additional information about the changes to the Culinary Sustainability and Hospitality program.  

We have been diligently working on a plan to provide current students with a graduation progression plan. I am pleased to share with you that, this morning, the provost approved our proposal to provide courses for the BS in Culinary Sustainability and Hospitality through Spring 2021. This will give all current CSH majors the opportunity to complete their degree in a traditional four year time frame. 

The NEST advising office will be working with Dr. Christian Hardigree to complete and publish the course rotation as soon as possible.  Spring registration will proceed normally.

Thank you for your patience as we worked to finalize the plans for the major. We are pleased that all current majors will have the opportunity to complete the degree they began.

Please feel free to contact me directly at, or at (470) 578-2130 as questions or concerns arise.
