University of Johannesburg, School of Tourism and Hospitality
The genesis of the School of Tourism and Hospitality (STH) dates back to 19 February 1969 when the Witwatersrand College of Advanced Technical Education envisaged that South Africa should grow its own hoteliers and advertised the first lecturing positions in Hotel Administration.The Hotel School of the Witwatersrand College of Advanced Technical Education officially opened its doors in January 1969 in the Italic Centre, Plein Street, Central Business District of Johannesburg under the leadership of Prof Japie van Lill. In 1972 the Hotel School relocated to Smit Street and in 1981, entered the field of higher education as a Technikon Witwatersrand (TWR) Department offering the three-year Diploma in Hotel Management. From 1987, the TWR's "Smit Street Hotel School" featured as the predominant provider of South African hospitality executives under the leadership of Dr Reinie Mornet until his retirement in 2004.
