The School of Hospitality, Recreation & Tourism (HRT) is dedicated to ensuring that students graduate from their programs with the skills, attitudes and competencies required for successful careers and citizenship. Together, we can create a community dedicated to academic integrity and the pursuit of learning, by committing to the six fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, courage, and responsibility (ICAI, 2014). The students, faculty, staff and administrators are collectively responsible for demonstrating and upholding these shared values.
