Alumni Association

The mission of The School of Hospitality Business Alumni Association is to provide active leadership in support of the mission of The School through participation, image enhancement, financial commitment, and promotion of synergies among students, faculty and staff, alumni, community, and industry partners.  The objectives of The Association are exclusively educational and charitable.

The Alumni Association is a worldwide network of Spartans helping Spartans.

The School of Hospitality Business Alumni Association is open to all alumni of The School. The Executive Board of Directors, consisting entirely of alumni, oversees the activities of the Alumni Association. The Appointed Board of Directors consists of graduates and non-graduates from all segments of leadership positions within the hospitality industry who act as a group of advocates for The School and its mission.

The Alumni Association Board fulfills its mission in a number of ways that benefit The School. It sponsors several major events:

  • Executive & Appointed Board of Directors Members meetings held each May in Chicago and each Homecoming on campus
  • Homecoming parade and after-parade tailgate, game day reception and football game each fall
  • Celebration of Leadership Award Ceremony and Reception in November during the HX: Hotel Experience Trade Show in New York City
  • Annual Destination Auction (jointly hosted by the Alumni Association and Hospitality Association) each February
