Each year, UCF Rosen College of Hospitality honors two celebrated icons in the hospitality and tourism industry via its Central Florida Hospitality Hall of Fame Awards. These leaders in our industry have contributed significantly to the hospitality and tourism community in Central Florida, have served as advocates for the Rosen College and UCF, have had a philanthropic impact on the Rosen College, and have served in volunteer and advisory roles for the college.
Beginning in 2022, UCF Rosen College of Hospitality Management will recognize outstanding alumni through its Distinguished Alumni Awards. Every year, two alumni will be recognized as (1) a Distinguished Alumni and (2) an Outstanding Young Alumni for being highly respected professionals, advocates for the college, and for their volunteer service and philanthropy at UCF and Rosen College in particular. These are the highest honors bestowed to Alumni by the Rosen College of Hospitality Management.
2024 Winners of these prestigious accolades will be announced in late January 2024 and will be honored during the Rosen College of Hospitality Management Central Florida Hall of Fame event, which will be held on March 27, 2024, at the Rosen College campus. Additional Details forthcoming. Winners of Hall of Fame and Distinguished Alumni Awards must be available to attend and be honored on that date.
Nominations are now open for both the Central Florida Hospitality Hall of Fame and the Distinguished Alumni awards and will close on January 15, 2024.
