Industry Partners


We offer tailored research and intervention services for hospitality organizations at no cost. That means that if your hospitality workplace is dealing with a health or safety issue, we will utilize our research and intervention skills to analyze the need for a solution, develop and implement the solution, and evaluate the effectiveness of the solution. Our research focus is well-suited to answer a number of safety and well-being issues, from accidents and injuries, to employee stress or absenteeism.

Support Student Enrichment

Facilitate student immersion in the hospitality industry through job shadowing, practicum experiences, and internship opportunities.


Each semester,  the TRT Program hosts a workshop on an issue relevant to the health and safety of hospitality professionals. Attend these free workshops in-person or online to learn about cutting-edge workplace solutions from researchers and industry leaders.


The TRT program is currently engaged in a number of research projects focused on the health and safety of hospitality workers. We are always open to opportunities for research collaboration and establishing new working relationships with academics from a variety of disciplines.
