The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management acknowledges and honors the heritage and rights of Indigenous people. We recognize that our university and community are located in the traditional homelands of the Bodewadmik (Potawatomi), Lenape (Delaware), Myaamia (Miami), and Shawnee People. We pay homage to the original caretakers and appreciate their continued presence and contributions.
