INITIATED: November 8, 2005

To provide guidance for food service activities undertaken by the NMU Hospitality Management Program.
All Faculty and Staff.
It is the policy of Northern Michigan University to provide food service to the campus community and the public as part of the learning experience provided students enrolled in Hospitality Management/Food Service Management classes. Faculty and students in the Department of Technology and Occupational Sciences offer food service as part of an applied learning instructional model. Food service students need a series of practical experiences that are progressive in nature; hence the Department of Technology and Occupational Sciences have determined that two kinds of experiences shall be available to meet the demands of its instructional programs.
The Hospitality Management Program will limit the food services provided to those services needed for instructional purposes. It is also understood that the instructional programs will not engage in advertising or promotion that would put them into competition with the NMU Conference and Catering Services Department or off-campus food services businesses. Groups wishing to arrange for the Hospitality Management Program to provide instructional food service events shall contact the Department Head of the Technology and Occupational Sciences Department. Discussion will be held with the Hospitality Management faculty to determine if the requested event is compatible with the ongoing instructional program. If the faculty agrees to participate in the event, the group requesting services will be instructed by the departmental administration to contact the NMU Conference and Catering Services Department to make arrangements for facility usage and invoicing. The processing of all facility reservations, arrangements for custodial services and invoicing will be handled by the NMU Conference and Catering Services Department.
In recognition that the Conference and Catering Department has responsibility for use of NMU facilities other than uses directly related to a class, the following procedure applies to on-campus and off-campus groups wishing to use the services of the Hospitality Management Program.
