Family & Consumer Sciences
The Department of Family and Consumer Sciences traces its roots to the founding of Bradley University, when Nellie Kedzie designed a home economics curriculum that blended theoretical teaching with hands-on learning.
Today, that educational philosophy still underpins the department, which was renamed to focus on the family as a consuming unit while preparing graduates to meet new and emerging challenges in the field.
