Research, Extension, & Partnerships

RECENT Conferences


The Research and Extension Agenda of the Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institution Management (DHRIM) will anchor on the demands and issues of the multi-disciplinary aspects of the key components - food, accommodation and tourism - towards the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with focus on SDG #8 (decent work and economic growth), #11 (safe and sustainable cities and communities), and #12 (responsible consumption and production) recognizing the role of stakeholders in safeguarding and promoting local culture while providing innovation and solution platforms through the use of management resources resulting in a sustainable and resilient hospitality and tourism industry.

Based on a common set of agenda, evidence-based scientific investigations and service-oriented projects shall be carried out independently or congruently under close coordination with the Office of Research and Publication – Research Ethics Committee (ORP-REC) and the Office of Community and Extension Services (OCES).

Research programs and projects, abstracts or extended paper presentations, book writing, case studies, guest speakerships, outreach works and other research, publication, and extension undertakings will be provided to address the requirements of internal and external clients – the University of the Philippines, communities at the grass root level, businesses and government, private sector as well as international markets by the faculty, students, alumni and staff of the department.

Various courses in the BS HRIM and MHRIM Programs will be utilized as  management resources to operationalize and advance the research and extension agenda of the department. These include Culinary Management (HRIM 104), Human Resources Management (HRIM 127), Research Methods (HRIM 199) and Masteral Thesis (MHRIM 300), to name just a few.

Equally, the common courses, HE 100 (Family and Societal Development) and Ethics and Values in Family and Society (HE 101), including Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS), National Service Training Program (NSTP) and all the sub-disciplines of CHE could offer multi-sectoral and multi-disciplinary extension projects with the active participation of the faculty from the different departments, student council members, local government officials, community leaders, residents and non-government organizations (NGOs).
