This is an exciting time of year as we get ready to start the academic year, and this also serves as my first update as the director of the CHR. The CHR is entering an exciting phase as we look to grow along with the school as part of Cornell’s new College of Business. The CHR will continue its strong focus on applied research addressing hospitality and service industry issues, as we look to engage with a larger audience of students with interests in hospitality. Over the coming months keep an eye out for a small redesign of the CHR website as we look to highlight research, blogs and student research in a streamlined fashion. Thanks for your continued interest in the CHR.
