Northern Arizona University – School of Hotel & Restaurant Management – Flagstaff, AZ
The School of Hotel and Restaurant Management at Northern Arizona University offers students and colleagues a "culture" that models the hospitality ethic of service and high standards. We teach a combination of "hi-tech and hi-touch" skills in a challenging four-year, baccalaureate program that combines management, leadership, and technical studies enriched by the Liberal Arts and cultural sensitivity. And we do it all in a beautiful 4-season setting high in the Arizona mountains. (More below.)

We provide a student-centered atmosphere with small classes and a caring faculty-all of whom have industry experience and a commitment to excellent teaching. Opportunities abound for study abroad-and we have recently added a second major: International Hospitality Management. A strong internship program (domestic and international) further enhances real-world insights for students, as does our unique Isbell Center for Hospitality Ethics. HRM was one of the first schools in the U.S. to win ACPHA-accreditation.

The school manages The Inn at NAU, a full-service hotel/restaurant/lounge staffed and operated by HRM students, under the guidance of a professional staff. The school's classes are kept small by design, with instructor-to-student ratios of 1:40 for lecture classes and 1:20 for labs. Financial Aid and scholarships are available. Private donor scholarships range from $300 to $3000.

Flagstaff, Arizona is an internationally known tourist destination, and as such, provides many hospitality-related employment opportunities for students. The city enjoys strong tourism, both winter and summer. This is not surprising given our enviable location-just 10 miles south of prime ski slopes, 80 miles south of the Grand Canyon, and 30 miles north of Sedona's famous red rocks! Spring breaks often find our students at Lake Havasu (3+ hours), Las Vegas (4+ hours) or Phoenix/Scottsdale (2 hours).

The school has won kudos for its curriculum development and delivery systems for new media. Through them, HRM has created model training programs for remote locations, including tribal lands and national parks. HRM is also noted for its early commitment to "webitizing" academic courses for on-line students and building community college partnership degree programs in Tucson and Scottsdale.

HRM invites you to "make a reservation for a great education" with us. Please visit our website: www.nau.edu/hrm.
