We are committed to educating hearts and minds to cultivate the whole person, to pursue learning as a lifelong humanizing and liberating social activity, and to make excellence the standard for teaching, scholarship, creative expression, and service.

At the heart of the Humanistic Management and Hospitality department is a shift in the understanding of the function and purpose of organizations. Specifically, Humanistic Management asserts that organizations should function to serve and enhance the well-being and dignity of human beings, promote the intrinsic value of all life, and subordinate wealth creation when determining organizational goals. Simply put, organizations should work for human beings, not the other way around. Our department aims to make organizations more humane by teaching and embodying humanistic management practices. We have one undergraduate major in Management, one undergraduate major in Hospitality, and one graduate program in Organization Development. We also teach several courses in the part-time, full-time, and Executive MBA programs.
