PatrickMoreo_smWelcome from the Dean

The College of Hospitality and Tourism Leadership (CHTL) at USFSM is a place where students can fulfill their dreams of becoming a hospitality professional.
We do this with a gifted and experienced faculty, dedicated staff and industry partners who stand ready to mentor students through practical work experience and internships resulting finally in professional placement in industry.

Our faculty have practical industry experience and highly respected advanced degrees.
They balance excellence in teaching with meaningful research especially grounded in the needs of the profession which we serve.
But more than anything else, they use these skills as a foundation for making certain that our College serves students and industry.
We strive to provide the best education for the broad array of hospitality management including specialty areas of hotels, resorts, restaurants and food service, clubs, technology, tourism development and health care among others.
The foundation for teaching and learning is to focus on operations and management.

Please be sure to contact me or any of our College faculty and staff to discuss your dreams, to show you around and to welcome you!
