This study used the Delphi method to identify trends of importance to Family and Consumer Sciences Education (FCSE). A panel of 21 FCSE experts identified 16 trends of significance and evaluated them by importance, desirability, feasibility, and confidence in validity of the trend. Nutrition appeared as a top priority, followed by consumer economics. The panel members identified other trends such as technology, changing family composition and family structure, and aging population. While the FCSE profession has been addressing these trends, they reflect persistent problems for many individuals and families and must be examined through continued research and education.
