The Hospitality Management program operates a student-run restaurant, Alere ("ah-le-ray" - to feed, to foster, to nourish). Alere is the featured restaurant at The Jerry Sue Thornton Center at 2500 E. 22nd Street. The restaurant provides training for students in restaurant operations and dining room operations, which includes fine dining and restaurant buffet service. Classes in dining room operations coordinate with advanced culinary classes to provide the menu and excellent customer service.
The restaurant offers contemporary American cuisine, rooted in exacting classical technique. It reflects the individual styles of both the chef instructors and the culinary students in the respective restaurant.
