Advisory Board

Within the hospitality industry collaboration between educational institutions and industry professionals and employers is mutually beneficial. Consistent with industry concern with the education students receive prior to entering the labor force and their success in general, educational institutions, through such collaborations, get a better understanding of industry expectations of graduates as potential employees. The Morgan State University Hospitality Management Program Advisory Board serves as the medium for enabling this collaboration. In addition to serving as strong advocates for the MSU Hospitality Management Program, the Board is charged with advising, assisting and supporting the program to help enhance the overall quality of students graduating from the program. Specific activities may include suggestions for the development of innovative training experiences, course content revisions, advocacy for institutional and legislative action and the planning and implementation of fundraising activities for the provision of student scholarships and travel awards.
