The University of Central Missouri (UCM) Family and Consumer Sciences Unit provides a well-rounded quality university education with a pedagogical foundation based upon a comprehensive and integrative approach to our discipline’s Body of Knowledge. We aspire to be the recognized educational leader in our state for motivating, challenging, and inspiring learners and prepare them to be personally and professionally successful in a 21st century global arena. We provide students the opportunities to master a complex set of essential skills and knowledge required to meet the needs of an ever-changing society and workforce.We are dedicated to life-long learning and value diversity. Our rich history demonstrates a dedication toward excellence and commitment to its holistic approach in understanding the critical problems of individuals, families and society.

The Unit at the University of Central Missouri is identified as two separate and self-sustaining programs that are housed in different departments and colleges within the university setting. The Fashion and Apparel Merchandising (FAMe) program is located in the College of Science and Technology and the School of Technology (SOT). The Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCS) program is located in the College of Education (COE) and the Department of Career and Technology Education (CTE). While the two programs are separate entities, they are integrated with required courses taken by all students completing degrees. A broader and more encompassing message is the philosophical view that both programs support the concept of preparing individuals and families for successful personal and professional lives.

The Unit is under the auspice of the citizens in the state of Missouri. The Board of Governors is appointed by the state governor to which decision making is done. Within the university structure and under the leadership of the university president, the Unit is housed in Academic Affairs. The Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs is responsible for the management of five academic colleges which the Unit has two reporting lines and lead by a Dean. The Dean for their respective college has departments/schools that are headed by a Chair. Programs Coordinators report directly to the Department Chair.
