Our dining mission is to provide our students a community environment that delivers nutritious, fresh, diverse, and sustainable dining experience.  We operate with three core values:  freshness, sustainability, and education (DEI).  Our vision is leveraging innovation and technology to develop a community-based experience providing our students, faculty and staff the healthiest, freshest, most diverse, and sustainable dining program possible.

Our department has more than 100 employees, all of whom are dedicated to preparing and serving healthy, nutritious, flavorful meals — rain, snow, or shine.  Our outstanding customer friendly service is a point of pride for everyone in the department.  We purchase only the finest ingredients from nationally branded and reputable suppliers.  We are committed to buying local, fresh food whenever possible.
