Missouri State University is offering a course in sustainable hospitality this spring.  HSP 300 will focus on the benefits of sustainability, renewable energy, resilience to climate change and more.

This 3-hour credit course will be taught by an expert in the field, Dan Ruben, founder of Boston Green Tourism. Learn more about Dan here: https://www.greenlodgingnews.com/the-green-hotel-revolution/. He will teach on campus three or four times during the semester and the rest of the time on Zoom.

A scholarship opportunity is available to one lucky Springfield Hotel Lodging Association member or employee of an SHLA property to attend the course for free (a $1,100 value).  If you are interested in attending this course, whether on scholarship or on your own, contact Laurie Hayes, SHLA director, at info@shla.com or Cara Walker Whiteley SHLA president at cwalker@walkerhg.com

This course is also open to individuals eligible for the Missouri 62+ program. This program allows those 62 and older to take college courses as a non-degree-seeking student free of charge.
