Capacity Building in Tourism Education

Capacity building and institutional development through training is a key component for the vitality and sustainability of the tourism industry in South Africa. In order to address this major need, the University of Florida and Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in Tshwane, South Africa have formulated a partnership to strengthen its teaching, research, service and faculty development initiatives in tourism management.

Launched in 2009, this 3-year project drew together partners and stakeholders from across a wide range of disciplines and skill-sets to achieve the project objectives outlined by the Department of Tourism at Tshwane University of Technology.
