The RISE Up program is being coordinated by Director of CPS, Kristin Fields. Dr. Susan McCartney, Director of the Small Business Development Center at Buffalo State, is supporting RISE Up through her vast network of community connections, including Christine Langenfeld, Operations Manager of the Amherst Chamber of Commerce, who approached Buffalo State to partner in providing this training.
We hope to reach out to other local Chambers of Commerce, as well as other entities, including the WNY Restaurant Association, in the near future.
On campus, Kathleen O'Brien, Chair of the Hospitality and Tourism Department, has framed out the program and is assisting with the recruitment of instructors.
The program will be provided in our newly remodeled classroom and lab facilities, with hands-on experiences provided in Campus House, where patrons can view students at work in the open, state-of-the-art kitchen.
