“There is no better place for world class hospitality education than Santa Fe — and the city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe Community College should take the lead in making it happen.” We are pleased to say, we’re on it.
The city of Santa Fe and Santa Fe Community College welcome the opportunity to collaborate on making Santa Fe “a center of excellence for hospitality education by offering World Class Hospitality Education to it’s schedule.” We have the cultural, educational and professional resources in place. SFCC offers degree and certificate programs that help prepare students for our vibrant hospitality industry, including culinary arts, hospitality and tourism. The city of Santa Fe has a newly created pilot talent recruitment project that has already placed 12 interns with local businesses and organizations that will diversify the labor force and keep our college graduates and their talents in New Mexico.
We agree that it will take more than the city and SFCC to create the pathways for careers in hospitality and tourism. It has to be a holistic approach strengthened with community collaboration. We will work together to garner support from the community to develop a citywide initiative.
