Dear TIM student,

On behalf of the faculty and staff at the UH Mānoa TIM School, I welcome you to our TIM ‘ohana. We are looking forward to working with you through the next few years as you pursue your academic and professional goals.

Each element of the TIM curriculum provides an essential building block for a complete education which is relevant not only to the travel industry but to virtually any service-related enterprise or profession. The curriculum focuses on developing problem-solving, decision-making techniques and critical-thinking skills for successful managers and leaders.

As our programs move forward together, I encourage you to take advantage of the many opportunities at TIM School as well as at the Shidler College of Business.

These opportunities include joining one of eight student organizations, participating in the TIM internship program, attending the annual Back to School Bash in September, engaging in Netlinks industry networking events, and many joint activities with the Shidler College of Business.

To better support your TIM experience, our caring faculty and staff are always available to you and are committed to helping you explore your passion and achieve your highest potential.

I look forward to meeting you and wish you a successful first year.

Vance Roley,
Interim Dean, School of Travel Industry Management
Dean, Shidler College of Business
