The Collins College Of Hospitality Management

The Collins College Expansion

Thanks to more than $10 million in private donations, The Collins College of Hospitality Management is undergoing a building expansion. The project is underway and is scheduled to be completed by late 2015.

The Collins College Expansion Project comprises classrooms and faculty offices and a student commons.

Our Donors

In 2008, Carol and Jim Collins, namesakes and longtime supporters of the college, pledged to match up to $5 million in donations for the $10 million academic building.

Panda Restaurant Group founders Andrew and Peggy Cherng, donated $2.5 million; The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation gave $2 million; and prominent Inland Empire businessman Eugene Park donated $1 million to the college.

Facility Upgrades and Improvements

The Collins College is committed to maintaining high-quality, state-of-the-art facilities. There are several projects underway or recently finished. Notably the computer lab in Building 79 was renovated to resemble a stylish high-end hotel lobby. Read more about the Facility Upgrades and Improvements.
