NSMH: National Society of Minorities in Hospitality, UMass Amherst Chapter

NSMH started in 1989 at Cornell University, and is constantly growing with over 1,000 students across the country at other hospitality schools. We are the premier professional organization and resource center for rising, young hospitality students who have a passion for the hospitality industry and want to better themselves and excel! NSMH stands for friendships, opportunity, and so much more!


We believe in order to be successful in the industry, to embrace and address diversity in the workforce is necessary. Our events and programs include tours of hotels, casinos, and cruise boats, along with volunteering, workshops, and guest speakers. Our two main events are Regional Conference which will be in October 2013, and National Conference, which will be in St. Louis, Missouri, February 2014.


Our industry sponsors and partners include Marriott Hotels, Four Seasons Hotels, Starwood, Sodexo, Hilton Hotels, Hyatt Hotels Corporation, and many more. As we are a wide network of students, schools, and companies, we hope to welcome you to our NSMH family!
