At the time of the establishment of the Webber Trusts, Home Economics was the name of many Colleges, Schools, and/or Academic Departments across the United States , including the State of Arizona . Now many Home Economics units are named Human Ecology or Family and Consumer Sciences. Additionally, some traditional areas of study within home economics units are no longer administrated by Colleges or Schools of Human Ecology or Family and Consumer Sciences. Examples include Nutritional and Food Sciences, Interior Design, and Food Management. These changes have led to some confusion about what undergraduate curriculums qualify as “home economics” curriculums. The following paragraphs are offered to help clarify what programs of study qualify:
ONLY accredited curriculums (courses of study) offered in the State of Arizona can be funded at the undergraduate level. The curriculums may be offered at the State Universities (UA, ASU, NAU), State Community Colleges such as Pima CC, or for profit post-secondary educational institutions such as the Culinary Arts Institute ( Scottsdale ) or the Design Institute (Tucson and Phoenix, for example).
