Message from Department Head Matthew Hulver

 HNFE has outstanding and dedicated faculty and staff who provide services to the fifth largest undergraduate program at Virginia Tech.

Together, we are working to build HNFE into an internationally recognized program; we are one of the few departments in the country that offers an integrative program encompassing nutrition, foods, and exercise. 

In addition to having over 1000 undergraduate students majoring in Dietetics or the Science of Food, Nutrition, and Exercise, we have 70 graduate students studying in three established research tracks: Behavioral and Community Science, Clinical Physiology and Metabolism, and Molecular and Cellular Science.

Our department is committed to expanding academic offerings and advancing research while maintaining our level of excellence to our students.

As department head, my door is always open.

Matt Hulver
