A component of the Management Program within the Division of Business & Entrepreneurship, the goals of the Center are:

  • To enable students to earn the credentials and experience necessary to undertake and succeed in the railway heritage and tourism management industry.
  • To have a positive and on-going impact on North American railway heritage and tourism venues, regardless of size, by providing the information and tools needed to help these venues increase interest, attendance, volunteerism and revenue.
