Gustolab International Food Systems and Sustainability designs and organizes university alumni tours in collaboration with professors and alumni associations at universities.
- The HWS alumni/alumnae and parent trip held in 2013 with tour leaders, Elena Ciletti and Jim Crenner. The program entitled ‘Artistic and Culinary Culture in Rome’ included: visits and tours of art related sites, and neighborhoods of Rome, a restoration workshop, thematic meals, a lecture on art and food, and an excursion to the countryside of Rome to visit a Slow Food cheese production. Program participants also had a chance to meet and interact with HWS students studying abroad in Rome.
- Another program developed with the UMass Amherst Alumni Association and the College of Humanities & Fine Arts alumni: The Art of Taste: Appreciating Food and Art in Italy with Professor Roberto Ludovico.
