Welcome to the Department of Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management
Improving Consumers' Lives through Design, Management, and Policy
The Department of Apparel, Housing, and Resource Management (AHRM) is a dynamic and student-focused department with a mission to improve the lives of individuals, families and the broader community by incorporating consumer, business, and design perspectives in our various undergraduate program areas. These undergraduate program areas are Apparel Product Development and Merchandising Management, Housing, Residential Property Management, and Consumer Studies.
Our programs offer many student learning opportunities including design studios, "real-world" projects, internships and undergraduate research. We also provide events where students can interact with industry professionals through study tours and on-campus visits by nationally recognized speakers.
The AHRM Department is in the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences.
