The Culinary Services Development Committee meets monthly to discuss issues relevant to the Dining Halls, ranging from quality of food to taste-testing. The committee is a student-led group composed of various members of the Culinary Services staff and several of your peers. It is not required that members live on campus or have Meal Plans; rather, the committee looks for diverse opinions and values an equal representation of all students.


The CSDC has been instrumental in providing feedback that has led to the improvements in quality and the amount of food being offered at the university Grab 'N Go stations and possible changes in general menu options and selection. In addition, CSDC assisted in creating the layout and menu for Café BiblioTech, Baker University Center, Nelson Court and Shively Court. This semester, CSDC will be focusing on future Culinary Service venue improvements.
