Speaker:
 
Dr. Charles Calvert, Professor of Hospitality Management, Campus Dean USCB Hilton Head Island was the speaker.  He told about the Bachelor of Science Degree in Hospitality Management program.  The mission is to reach out to the local areas, provide the education in Hospitality Management and encourage graduating students to remain employed locally.  With 2.74 million visitors to Hilton Head (2017), tourism is an important part of the local economy - it is 10% of the state's economy.  The mission is to Teach, research and Service.  USCB responds to regional needs and draws on regional strengths and prepare graduates to contribute locally.  It is recognized nationally for the Hospitality Management program.  They are constantly conducting research .  Research has shown that the number one reason people are drawn to Hilton Head is the beaches.  Dining and lodging are additional draws to the island. Capacity and quality of product which is what needs to be considered.   Dr Calvert gave much interesting information about the industry locally, considerations needed to meet the demand, and how USCB prepares the student for the Hospitality industry.
