National Society of Minorities in Hospitality (NSMH)

Since its founding in 1989 at Cornell University, NSMH, which now spans 81 college campuses, has been a non-profit student run organization that stresses networking and the professional development of our members. We are an organization of students and professionals representing an array of social and cultural backgrounds and a wealth of unique perspectives and ideas.

Getting Involved

Members of the UNLV chapter of NSMH must pay $40 dues every year ($30 locally and $10 nationally). Students must join nationally online.

Who Should Join?

ALL students who will soon lead the diverse workforce that makes up the hospitality industry. NSMH is proud of its diversity and believes that understanding and engaging multiculturalism provides a competitive advantage in the hospitality industry.


General meetings will be held on Thursdays at 5:30 pm. This year, we will host industry professionals as speakers and exclusive NSMH networking and social events; facilitate spirited, in-person town hall styled discussions; and take advantage of virtual and online meeting technology to ensure open consistent communication between our business partners, executive/auxiliary boards, mentors and mentees.
