The Hospitality Institute is a program of the Miami International Hospitality Center at Miami Dade College. The Hospitality Institute was established to connect Miami’s inner city residents with job opportunities in the local hospitality and tourism industry through job readiness and customer service training.

Since its inception in 2007, The Hospitality Institute has provided training and job placement assistance to thousands of participants. The Hospitality Institute is currently located in Overtown, and plans are underway to expand the program to serve residents in other areas of Miami Dade County.
