We’re here to help guide students to R·H·T career opportunities statewide, while working to connect faculty to industry leaders across California. Whether sharing relevant industry information, supporting faculty development or just celebrating the exciting things happening on campuses and in classrooms, our team is committed to being a valued resource to our community college partners. 

Beyond the community college system, hundreds of high school instructors are doing excellent work preparing students for culinary and hospitality careers. Our team is committed to driving stronger connections between high schools and community colleges, with the goal of alerting more students to the many career pathways in the R·H·T sector.

Please take a moment to reach out and join our Community of Practice. We look forward to connecting with you!
