The National Universities Commission (NUC) has given full accreditation to the Foodservice and Tourism Program in the College of Food science and Human Ecology (COLFHEC) FUNAAB. This was recently made known to the University by the Commission.

The accreditation exercise was conducted in July by a team of four NUC officials led by Prof. Ojotimehin. During the exercise the team inspected facilities in the Department, the College and the University. Academic and Administrative records including the curriculum were also assessed.

According to the HOD of the department, Dr A. Mobolaji Omemu, the full accreditation of 5 years was given with a proviso to change the name of the Department to HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM. This will help to capture the whole essence of the program.

In addition to a change of name, the program has also been re-structured to 5 years instead of four years and students are expected to go on SIWES at 400L second semester.

The HOD stated that the new program has already commenced with a new curriculum. The current intakes of 100 Level students in the 2013/2014 academic session, the returning 200Level and 300Level students will run the new program of HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM for 5 years. However, the graduating 400 Level students and students currently in 400 Level will still run and graduate with the FOODSERVICE AND Tourism curriculum and structure.

Students are encouraged to go to the department of HOSPITALITY AND TOURISM (HTM) for further clarifications.
