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. Local benefits include an NSMH polo and a professional headshot for your professional networking profiles (LinkedIn, Gmail, etc.). National benefits include scholarship opportunities and is the first step to attending the conferences!

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 are held every other Thursday at 5:30 p.m. in BEH 110. Our end goal is to prepare students for the regional and national conference where students have the opportunity to meet an array of recruiters and land that dream job within the industry! We host industry professionals as speakers, exclusive NSMH property tours and social events with other hospitality-oriented chapters throughout the year. We are also involved in hosting Hospitality Week and plenty of community service events to build your resume. Join us as we transform today’s students into tomorrow’s leaders!
