Public Disclosure

The Hospitality Management degree program has developed extraordinary teaching and learning opportunities that require students to participate and work in the industry as part of courses

We are required to consult the Zachary’s List and must deny access to individuals on this list to participate in internships, practicums and volunteer activities that place students in structured and semi-structured settings with children.

(https://www.purdue.edu/ehps/police/assistance/know/zachary.html )

As a direct consequence we have changed the registration requirement for (HTM 21400, HTM 18100, HTM 49400); internships/practicum (HTM 30100 and HTM 30200); HTM 310000 (F&B Operation Management), HTM 420000 (Event Management), HTM 31500 (Club Management) and HTM 376000, 37700 and 37800 (Florida semester courses) to “with departmental permission” from Summer 2012 onwards.

For all these courses, the department is now required to consult Zachary’s list and may not admit anyone on this list that applies to his or her course.

We strongly recommend that students who register for the Hospitality Management Degree program take the above into consideration as it may deny them the opportunity to complete the program and therefore to graduate.

If you are in any doubt or have any further questions please set up a meeting with either the Dean of Students or the Department Chair.
