New Regional Higher Ed Center Partnership


A recent Department of Labor study estimates the Central New York hospitality industry will grow by 14% over the next ten years. With that in mind, Onondaga Community College and Paul Smith’s College have signed an agreement which will allow students who graduate from Onondaga’s Hospitality Management program the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree from Paul Smith’s while attending classes at the Regional Higher Education Center on the Onondaga campus. This will make Paul Smith’s the 5th on campus partner in the Regional Higher Education Center, joining Keuka College, SUNY Delhi, SUNY Empire State College, and Northeastern Seminary. This accelerated degree program will combine on campus and online learning to afford students the ability to complete a bachelor’s degree in hotel, resort and tourism management within five semesters.
