The Hospitality Industry

The U. S. Department of Labor classifies hospitality as one of the nation's fourteen high-growth industries and it is projected to add substantial numbers of new jobs to the economy, effect the growth of other industries, and be transformed by technology and innovation requiring new skills sets for workers. The past decade of employment in Virginia supports this profile. Virginia and the nation increasingly require skilled professionals that are ready to serve the needs of travelers and community members.  The learning opportunities provided at Reynolds prepare students for these exciting opportunities.
