Historical Note

From 1837 to 1894, the domestic work including the preparation of food was done by faculty and students. However, in 1894, C.E. Green was appointed as an assistant in the home department and in 1896, a woman was hired to wash dishes. These appointments were made in response to the increasing demands of the domestic work program on faculty and students. Office of the Steward was established in 1935. In 1967, Office of the Steward became Food Services. In the fall of 1993, the name was changed to Dining Services.
