Meet the RDN

Ruth Sullivan, MSEd, RDN, CDN

My name is Ruth Sullivan. I am the Registered Dietitian for the Syracuse University Food Services Department. I work one-on-one with students that have special diets. I help all students as well with those with special diets get the most out of their meal plan by  reviewing menu choices at the dining centers and elsewhere on campus. My goal is to assist students in finding nutritional diet solutions so they are comfortable eating on campus and are able to have success in academics and other activities.  I also help with employee training on related nutritional issues and assist on nutrition and wellness initiatives throughout campus.

How can you get in touch with me?
