CTHM dean elected board member in international accreditation agency


COLLEGE of Tourism and Hospitality Management Dean Gezzez Giezi Granado has been elected member of the board of directors of the International Centre of Excellence in Tourism and Hospitality Education (THE-ICE).

“I believe that the vote of confidence is not much on my qualifications, it is more on the name and integrity of our beloved UST,” Granado told the Varsitarian.

In January, Granado won the organization’s Best Research Paper award for his study on the legalities surrounding parties, festivals, and celebrations in the Philippines.

“I am so eager to share with them our topnotch and world-class enriched virtual tourism and hospitality education because I want to learn from them as well, especially on how they cope with virtual teaching and learning,” Granado said.

In 2015, CTHM gained full membership status in THE-ICE after undergoing accreditation.

“THE-ICE is very significant to our college and UST in general because it will keep us striving for excellence,” Granado said.

Established in 2004, THE-ICE is an international accreditation and quality assurance agency with a global network of higher education institutions.

The election was held on Nov. 11 during the group’s general membership meeting conducted on the Zoom web-conferencing platform.
