Invest in the future now and donate to the teaching hotel!

In Maui County alone, 40% of all jobs are visitor-related and Maui County’s strength as a top tourism destination depends upon our ability to provide for a qualified workforce.  UHMC’s HOST Program plays a key role in contributing to our workforce and the future of our visitor industry.  The HA of Maui provides our future industry leaders with an innovative work and classroom environment, which allows the students to gain hands-on experience of running an actual hotel.  These students are our future industry leaders.

Named Tile Campaign

This fall, 2013 a unique “Named Tile” campaign will be launched.  Small tiles will be made in kilns at the UHMC Art Department, and donors can have their names etched on the various-colored tiles for a gift of $500.  The tiles will be mounted on a special “HOST Academy Donor Wall” at the HOST Academy Lobby.
