Our Story

Our Story

The National Society of Minorities in Hospitality has grown tremendously from four visionary leaders at Cornell University in 1989, to over one thousand students across the country that continue to set the precedent for the future leaders of this industry.

NSMH is the premier professional organization for hospitality students.

We address diversity and multiculturalism, as well as the career development of our student members. We feel that these lessons are important to the future leaders of this industry and that anyone of any ethnicity, gender, or other demographic group can find value in our conversation.

We provide events and programs that bring together college-level students with company sponsors, industry representatives, other hospitality organizations, advisors and mentors, and hospitality high school students.

With respect to students and education, NSMH aims to be a total resource center. NSMH is a resource for the industry to find dynamic talent as well as for students to find qualified answers to relevant questions and have a window to the industry that awaits them!
