[Excerpt] The book you are about to read distills and shares the expertise of the faculty of the world's preeminent school focusing solely on hospitality industry education. Founded in 1922 at the specific request of the hotel industry, the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration is the oldest school of its kind and the only Hotel School within an Ivy League university. Our mission is to promote hospitality leadership, which we achieve through a combination of teaching, research, and industry collaboration. The 70 faculty members of the school seek to expand the state of knowledge in the industry—whether by creating new knowledge through research, teaching those who are eager to learn, or disseminating knowledge through consulting, writing, and presentations—and help develop the future leaders of the hospitality industry.
