History

Family and consumer sciences began at the University of Georgia in 1918 with the establishment of the Division of Home Economics. In 1919, Mary E. Creswell became both the first home economics graduate and the first female to graduate from the University of Georgia. In 1933, when the School of Home Economics was established, Creswell was appointed as the first dean.

The name was changed to the College of Family and Consumer Sciences in 1990 to better reflect the research, teaching and outreach being conducted.
