The Delivery Science in International Nutrition certificate is conferred jointly by the Tufts Friedman School and partner institution, United Nations University (UNU). The mission of the UNU is to contribute, through research and capacity building, to efforts to resolve the pressing global problems that are the concern of the UN, its Peoples and Member States. A part of that contribution is to develop educative opportunities for UN personnel and other related non-governmental organization (NGO) member organizations who work closely with the UN in various capacities. Tufts University, being an affiliated institution, is charged with helping to carry out this educative mission by developing and implementing educational programs, particularly in the area of nutrition and capacity building, for UNU’s staff and NGO employees worldwide.
