Hospitality Program Gets School Status at San Diego State

San Diego State University’s Hospitality and Tourism Management Program just graduated.

Established in 2001, the program, which grew from 13 students to 500 at present, was elevated in status to an official SDSU school earlier this month.

“In the hierarchy of universities, you start out as a program, then become a department and finally a school,” said Carl Winston, the program’s director. “So we skipped a grade and went directly to being a school.”

The university’s recreation department will also be part of the new school. Collectively the two will serve more than 700 students with 10 full-time and 11 part-time faculty members. The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management will be housed in the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts and students will continue to take courses there, as well as the business college.
