Statement of Purpose

At UCSB Conference & Hospitality Services, our primary objective is to support and enhance the educational, research and public service mission of the University by providing services and facilities in the planning, coordination, and execution of conference programs. We support the educational mission of the University and contribute to the academic year program of Housing, Dining & Auxiliary Enterprises by providing additional revenue and services to students, faculty, and other educationally related groups. Additionally, Conference & Hospitality Services markets the University and the Santa Barbara community to our clients by the efficient and professional administration of its services and the establishment of a positive base for community relations.
