FIU Hospitality Review
In September of 1972 the School of Hospitality Management at Florida International University enrolled its first class. As we enter our second decade there continues to exist a joy of achievement, creative effort, and excellent articulation between faculty, students and industry. It's an exciting time. This first issue of our bi-annual educational journal is an attempt to maintain this dynamic and cohesive relationship between academia and the operating world of hospitality management. It is hoped it will be considered as a forum for ideas to flow in both directions. I am sure that I speak for our currently enrolled 650 undergraduate and graduate students and the 32 members of our faculty when I welcome you to this new endeavor and invite you to become involved in its expansion. Our thanks to Dr. N.H. Ringstrom the editor of FIU Hospitality Review, and to our Editorial Board for their efforts. I trust you will find their work and the work of our contributors beneficial.
