Center for Tourism Policy Studies

In today’s dynamic travel and tourism industry, private-sector companies, governments, and development agencies require timely information and research as well as educational programs to update their knowledge and skills. The Center for Tourism Policy Studies (CTPS) conducts research for academic, government, and industry use, offers professional development and continuing education programs, and provides technical assistance and other community services in tourism-related areas. With its comparative advantage of experience and expertise the CTPS provides resolutions to tourism challenges and opportunities in Hawaii and countries in the Asia-Pacific region. The School is uniquely situated to meet the needs of the public and private sectors and a large variety of stakeholders involved in ensuring sustainable/responsible tourism. Through its programs, the CTPS:

  • Provides relevant professional development seminars and career-oriented courses at the local, regional, and international levels through continuing education, outreach, and extension services.
  • Conducts research of value to the travel industry and disseminates the findings and results to the academic, governmental, and private sector communities through publications, conferences, and lectures.
  • Coordinates service projects that promote the ideals and goals of sustainable/responsible tourism.
  • Maintains a comprehensive tourism resource center and develops linkages with research and training units within the university and with other educational institutions and tourism-related organizations in Hawaii, the Pacific-Asia region, and worldwide.

Reports and publications produced through the Center are available on the TIM website and an online occasional paper series will be made available.
