Ji-Young Lee has been appointed head of the Department of Nutritional Sciences. Lee joined the College in 2010 as an associate professor and was promoted to professor in August 2018.
“I feel very honored to be chosen as the next head of nutritional sciences,” Lee says. “I have developed such affection and loyalty to this department since I came to UConn, and I truly believe this is the best place for me.”
“I know this is a very tough job, particularly as the University faces budget challenges, but I feel the support from department faculty, staff and students as we look toward the future.”
“I have achieved much more than I could have imagined before I came to UConn, in part due to the support I received. I see my new role as an opportunity to return this support and help to make this department even more successful. A personal goal of mine is to create a place where members are happy and satisfied with their success and their career and can feel proud to be a member of this department.”
