This two-weekend, 2-credit course is designed to provide hospitality or other interested students with introductory knowledge and terminology regarding the rapidly growing fields of senior housing, CCRCs, and assisted living. While similar in a number of ways to other hospitality facilities, the course will expose students to some of the unique aspects involved in assessing feasibility, development, marketing, and operations of these senior-housing and related types of properties. Through lectures, case studies and in-class question/answer/discussion sessions, students will gain background on decision making, management, and regulatory issues. A field trip may be taken to a local facility as feasible with the size of the group.
