About James Noyes

Dr. Noyes spent twenty years in the hospitality and recreation industry working in a variety of leadership positions including operations, food and beverage, retail, and adventure/activities. Drawing upon these diverse experiences has allowed him to create a multi-layered approach to his teaching in which students are challenged to think conceptually about their work while remaining grounded in the current realities facing the hospitality and recreation industries. Dr. Noyes believes that students who engage in experiential learning gain the dual reward of engaging critical inquiry and practical experience, which better prepares them to live fulfilling lives and rewarding careers.
