  2. Develop and update existing and new curriculum in cooperation with faculty.
  3. Provide experiential learning and practical work experience for students.
  4. Target and enroll minorities in tourism studies to increase numbers of disadvantaged citizens preparing to work in the tourism sector.
  5. Increase involvement in meetings, seminars, and programs among higher education, national, and local government, and industry officials to result in opportunities to address local/regional/national tourism management issues.
  6. Formulate networking and applied research opportunities for faculty to promote awareness about sustainable and environmentally friendly tourism (eco-tourism) models.
