The University of Sto. Tomas is the first-ever academic institution locally and internationally, to be recognized as a Certified Guest Service Professionals Property. The honor was conferred by the American Hotel and Lodging Educational Institute (AHLEI).
The distinction, awarded recently at the Rector’s Hall, is in recognition of UST’s commitment to ensure that its hospitality management educators and staff are regularly trained to provide the highest level of service hospitality to guests and students. The recognition is also one of the many steps taken by the university to re-enforce its global competitiveness.
The College of Tourism and Hospitality Management (CTHM) certified its faculty members, staff and soon, its students working in the university’s on-site hotel through AHLEI’s Guest Service Gold Program. The staff received the CGSP pin and certificate.
According to Rev. Fr. Herminio V. Dagohoy, O.P., Ph.D, UST’s Rector, said during the awarding ceremony, “The University continues to strengthen degree programs in order to facilitate academic mobility for both faculty and students. This will help develop their competencies by exposing them to the best practices in the world.”
Present at the awarding rites were Aliza Totayo, Commercial Attache’, International Trade Administration of the US Embassy, Machi Borja, Hospitality Director and Public/Media Relations Head, Asia World Hospitality (AWH), the global partner of AHLEI in the Philippines.
