Dr. June Henton
Dr. June Henton is Professor and Dean of the College of Human Sciences at Auburn University in Alabama and since 1985, Dean Henton has provided leadership for teaching, research, and outreach programming in subject areas that range from nutrition and food to consumer behavior and health. The commitment of the college is to produce graduates who are not only professionally competent, but globally aware and socially engaged. In this vein, June became involved in the UN World Food Programme’s Student War on Hunger Campaign, which led to the partnership of 300 institutions of higher education under the banner of Universities Fighting World Hunger (UFWH). UFWH’s vision is to mobilize universities in the U.S. and abroad to make fighting hunger a core value of higher education institutions worldwide. She also led Auburn University in establishing its Hunger Solutions Institute to connect with ideas that work for ending hunger.
