Dear Students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the Online Master of Science in Food Safety program:

It is with mixed emotions that I share with you that I will be resigning as the Director of the Master of Science in Food Safety degree program as of June 30, 2014.  I will be assuming the position of Associate Dean of Professional Academic Programs and Student Services in the College of Veterinary Medicine at Michigan State University.  Although I am extremely excited about this new opportunity, I will miss my home with the MS in Food Safety family.
