We value our students and our relationships with them. You will feel it in your interactions with your faculty, the people who run the offices, and every day in the halls. We provide a comfortable culture within which you can succeed.
Employers make the real world training a strong and vital component of our Hotel and Restuarant Management program. You will be an integral part of shaping the minds of future members of the hospitality industry.
Business Leadership Program (BLP)
Leadership is the art and science of getting others to do what they would otherwise not do. Over the course of three years (beginning with the sophomore year) the BLP helps students learn to lead. Additional information on the BLP program HERE.
Professionalism Recognition Program (PRP)
The Professionalism Recognition Program (PRP) is a unique opportunity for Business and Hotel and Restaurant Management (HRM) majors to distinguish themselves by developing and demonstrating professional qualities in the classroom and through extracurricular activities. Find out more about the PRP program HERE.
Banfi Vintners Scholastic Tour
The Banfi Foundation has made a generous gift (scholarship) to the NAU SHRM Foundation to pay all expenses (airfare, hotels, all meals, all tours, wine, and instruction) for one HRM student and one faculty member on an 8-day guided tour of Italy. NAU is one of the 12 hospitality programs participating in the program. For additional information go HERE.
We foster relationships with hospitality industry leaders who come to SHRM to recruit, guest lecture, provide internships and work experience.
While they make campus visits throughout the academic year, they formally take part in the SHRM Hospitality Career Fair.
Check the calendar of events for recruitment activity each semester.

We encourage you to get involved in an SHRM student organization. Involvement in student activities is a great way to network with other students and industry leaders, build valuable leadership experience, and have fun! Join us for Club Night, at the beginning of each semester, when you can learn more about each organization. List of current SHRM Clubs.
