The Collins College of Hospitality Management at Cal Poly Pomona thrives from a tradition of philanthropy and legacy of industry support that has enabled it to grow significantly in infrastructure, reputation and quality of education since its formation in 1973.
It started as a small department within the College of Business of Administration with 2 faculty members and just over 30 students. Thanks to private support and belief in the potential of tomorrow's leaders, the college is now considered one of the nation's leading hospitality management programs.
With approximately 1,400 diverse students enrolled in our program, about 70% receive financial aid to assist with educational expenses. Financial assistance from generous donors allows students more time and energy to focus on academics.
"We are grateful for the generosity of our friends and alumni, whose continued financial support is critical to meeting the demand and maintaining our standard of excellence!"
