As of July 2014, I took position as Chair of the newly established Department of Global Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of West Florida. When I received word I was selected as department chair, I was absolutely elated. The opportunity to contribute to the UWF environment of learning and service is a true honor. This is an exciting time for Global Hospitality and Tourism Management. Our program supports one of the region’s leading economic drivers – tourism. I look forward to our department offering unparalleled experiential learning opportunities for students to succeed in today’s marketplaces; serving as an event and program hub for industry professionals; and conducting research helping us improve the ways we do business in hospitality, recreation and resort management.

I encourage you to peruse our website and curriculum provided. The University of West Florida and the Department of Global Hospitality and Tourism Management are in pursuits of potentially enormous, community-impacting opportunities that will provide our students with the best education and experiences possible while attending UWF!
