Cost Containment & Revenue Development

Conference & Hospitality Services hosts over 5,000 visitors to campus each year, which generates revenue through sales of services to primarily support capital intensive projects related to renewal and construction of key student facilities and services.


Hospitality Services created a PCI Compliant Web Registration System to simplify event planning. The system has handled hundreds of events and processed millions of dollars in event fees.
