      New Hospitality Offering

      Chef Peter Gilmore

      Widener University’s Center for Hospitality Management has partnered with Delaware County Community College (DCCC) to offer students culinary courses on Main Campus. The partnership welcomes Peter Gilmore, a world-renowned chef and program manager of the culinary arts at DCCC, to teach his introduction to culinary course at Widener. Gilmore has studied and worked in France and is most known for his contributions and service to Le Bec Fin, a former restaurant in Philadelphia. Gilmore will teach one course this fall and two courses in the spring of 2017.

      The partnership will allow for a seamless transition for students who complete the two-year degree at DCCC into Widener’s hospitality program. Widener students who have an interest in culinary arts will also have the opportunity to enroll in Gilmore’s courses for elective credits.

      “It’s a great opportunity for two institutions to collaborate in various ways, from recruitment initiatives to new programming,” said Dr. Joy Dickerson, associate dean of the Center for Hospitality Management. “We hope to provide a great experience for the DCCC students. It's also wonderful for the Widener students to have the opportunity to take a course under Chef Gilmore.”

      Dickerson also hopes the partnership integrates the two student bodies for organizational activities to continue to strengthen the Center for Hospitality Management’s student clubs.
