Community-Based Transformational Learning (CBTL)

The University of North Florida Nutrition and Dietetics undergraduate and graduate programs are community-based transformational learning programs. Community-based transformational learning refers to intentionally designed, coordinated and executed learning experiences in community-based settings that enhance participants' academic learning, contribute to their personal growth and increase their civic engagement while concurrently benefiting the community or communities in which these activities are embedded.



The vision of the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics is to be at the forefront of nutrition and dietetics by transforming students into valued nutrition and healthcare leaders who contribute to communities around the world.


The mission of the University of North Florida Nutrition and Dietetics department is to educate and inspire students of every level through leadership, scholarly pursuits, and community engagement.


The BS/DPD and MS/DI programs are accredited by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, 120 South Riverside Plaza, Suite 2190, Chicago, IL 60606-6995, (312) 899-0040 ext 5400. Students wishing to become registered dietitians will also need to complete a post-baccalaureate degree experience in an ACEND accredited internship (supervised practice) program and pass a national registration exam. Internships are competitive in nature and range from 6 months to 2 years in length. Most of these programs require that applicants utilize a centralized computer matching process called D&D Digital.
