Michael C. Sturman has been named the new director of the Center for Hospitality Research (CHR) at the Cornell School of Hotel Administration.

Sturman will oversee a broader reorganization of the school's centers and institutes to better serve both academics and industry practitioners.

In addition to his new role as CHR director, Sturman is Associate Dean for Faculty Development and is The Kenneth and Marjorie Blanchard Professor of Human Resources.

Widely published in human resources journals, his research focuses on the prediction of individual job performance over time and the influence of compensation systems.

"I want to express my appreciation to outgoing director Robert Kwortnik for beginning the strategic reorganization of our centers and institutes," said Sturman. "The CHR will continue to be the school's major driver of hospitality-related research, and we will work in conjunction with the new Cornell Institute for Hospitality Labor and Employment Relations and the ongoing Center for Real Estate and Finance, as well as the Pillsbury Institute for Hospitality Entrepreneurship. Together, our centers and institutes are building on the school's long-term commitment to the hospitality industry."

Founded in 1992, the CHR's operating model is unmatched by any other university center, as it provides the industry, researchers, and students with a stream of research at no charge, thanks to the support of a group of forward thinking industry partners.
