Center for Tourism & Hospitality

About the Center

The top-ranked Center for Hospitality & Tourism Management Studies at Brigham Young University–Hawaii (currently ranked #16 in the country out of 353 programs) expresses its sincere gratitude to the Marriott Foundation for its sponsorship. The Foundations’ contributions have helped support the ever-increasing operating expenses of the Center beginning in December 2015, and have empowered students to become exceptional leaders in the hospitality and tourism industries.

The Center for Hospitality & Tourism was established in December 2015 to support the Hospitality & Tourism Management (HTM) program’s growth and improvement goals.


As stewards of the guest experience and ambassadors of the Lord Jesus Christ, we glorify God by pursuing higher and holier hospitality solutions. When people interact with us, they feel the love of their Savior.


To transform HTM students into spiritually resilient, substantive representatives of God who engage in disruptive innovation, enhance the lives of travelers across the globe, and thrive as visionary leaders in meaningful, long-term careers.
