November 1: The Hospitality Industry
Hear about the booming hospitality industry and WSU Vancouver's new degree program that will serve it.
Join George Schweitzer (pictured left), hospitality industry executive, for a discussion about the hospitality industry in our region; and Nancy Swanger (pictured right), director and associate professor of the School of Hospitality Business Management in the WSU College of Business.
Schweitzer will discuss the drivers of regional growth in the hospitality industry and how this benefits the economy as a whole. Swanger will offer perspectives on the expansion of the hospitality business management program to WSU Vancouver.
WSU executive chef Jamie Callison will be present for a signing of his new cookbook, “The Crimson Spoon.” The 200-page, photo-illustrated cookbook features many of Callison’s highly acclaimed gourmet dishes and recipes that have long been favored among guests attending WSU’s world-class events. Recipes range from extravagant to simple and draw from each area of WSU’s food resources, such as the Organic Farm and Creamery, as well as from the Pacific Northwest. “The Crimson Spoon” will be available for sale for $38.
Lawrence Pintak, founding dean and professor for The Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at WSU will interview Dan Fletcher, former news chief for Facebook.
