Americans Coming Calling

A group of 40 students from Arizona State University will be visiting Rotorua in June. Part of their itinerary will include a seminar on Sustainable Tourism Practices, by Waiariki's Gordon Titchener. The ASU visit is part of their annual 5 week summer school session for students consisting of lectures in Arizona, field trips to New Zealand, lectures at James Cook University in Cairns and Field trips in Fiji before returning home.

The group will arrive in Rotorua on 3 June, spend the night in a marae, visit attractions on the morning of the 4 June and visit Waiariki that afternoon.

Dr. Victor Taye is one of the professors travelling with the students. He is renowned for the study of international tourism and its impact on host communities and has degrees from the University of Ghana and the University of Manitoba, Canada.

Waiariki is a leading tertiary education provider with regards to sustainable tourism and offers a Diploma in Sustainable Tourism Management, in addition to the Bachelor of Tourism Management degree. People interested in studying tourism full-time or part-time as they are working should contact Sally Hemsley at Waiariki for more information. The next intake of students is July 19.
