A recent article ranked the Department of Hotel, Restaurant and Institutional Management program and faculty 23rd in productivity among an international list of hospitality and tourism programs and authors. Three faculty were also named to the list of most prolific scholars including Fred DeMicco, ARAMARK Professor of HRIM, and Sri Beldona, associate professor (tied for 15th); and Sheryl Kline, department chair (17th). The article, “Hospitality Author and University Productivity in the 21st Century” appeared in the Journal of Culinary Science and Technology and analyzed scholarly contributions in eight of the most familiar and distinguished hospitality journals from 2001 through 2010 to establish a proxy for hospitality research productivity.
