BYU dietetics professor named to national accreditation board

Nora Nyland, a professor in Brigham Young University’s Department of Nutrition, Dietetics and Food Science, has been elected chair of the Commission on Accreditation for Dietetics Education.

The commission is the American Dietetic Association's accrediting branch for educational programs that prepare individuals for careers in dietetics-related professions. It accredits nearly 500 programs across the country.

The board functions as the commission’s governing body and grants final accreditation approval. Nyland’s role will be to make sure the agency continues to establish and enforce accreditation standards that ensure the quality and continued improvement of dietetics education programs throughout the United States.

Nyland received her bachelor’s and master’s degrees from BYU in food science and nutrition and food systems administration, respectively, and her doctorate from Kansas State University in institution management.
