IN RECOGNITION OF AN EXCEPTIONAL LEADER IN HOSPITALITY WHOSE VISION TRANSFORMED THE BUSINESS OF TRAVEL
The Arne M. Sorenson Hospitality Fund, established by Marriott International, honors the legacy of Arne M. Sorenson, the late President and CEO, and supports Howard University in building the next generation of hospitality industry leaders. The fund will support the programmatic and career development elements of the Marriott-Sorenson Center for Hospitality Leadership, which will be housed within the Howard University School of Business.
The Marriott-Sorenson Center for Hospitality Leadership, created by a gift from The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott Foundation, will feature a best-in-class program that expands educational and professional opportunities for Howard students and aims to develop future executives in the hospitality industry.
It is a privilege for the Foundation to recognize and honor Arne and partner with Howard University, one of the nation’s leading historically Black colleges and universities. In memory of Mr. Sorenson, please consider a donation to the Arne M. Sorenson Hospitality Fund.
Sharing a passion for creating opportunities for people less fortunate, J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott believed that by giving to worthy causes and supporting community needs, people will be empowered to make positive change in their lives.
