AACC hospitality program earns accreditation

Anne Arundel Community College's Hospitality, Culinary Arts and Tourism (HCAT) Institute received accreditation for its Hospitality Business Management program from the Accreditation Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration. The commission awarded a seven-year initial accreditation to the college's new Hotel/Restaurant Management (HRM) associate of applied science degree option in Hospitality Business Management.

This accreditation is in addition to the American Culinary Federation's Exemplary Program accreditation award in 2008 for the HRM Culinary Arts Operations degree program. Only 14 postsecondary schools in the country have earned both accreditations. For more information on the HCAT programs at Anne Arundel Community College, visit
