With the cooperation of industry executives, the School has created an internship program which literally utilizes the hotels, resorts, restaurants, clubs, airlines, travel agencies, and cruise lines as practice labs for students. The advanced phase of the internship program provides each student a structured training experience normally not available to a student until he or she has entered the industry after graduation. An Industry Advisory Board - which includes outstanding executives in the lodging, foodservice, and tourism industries - works regularly with the faculty, staff, and students of the School to formulate and update a curriculum that is current, flexible, and related to the needs of the hospitality and tourism industries. The School was designated a Program of Distinction by the former Florida Board of Education.
