The objective of Community Science Education is personal & professional development of an individual for better quality of life. To fulfill the need, the department of Home Science came into existence in Feb. 1980. It was upgraded to College of Home Science in 1991 with five established areas, one of which is Home Management /Family Resource Management. In the context of the changes happening in the microenvironment and the socio cultural and economic systems, the division of Family Resource Management was upgraded to independent Department of Family Resource Management in the year 1991 in the College of Community (Home) Science.

The department of FRM & CS deals with the everyday art and science of living with the aim of improving the quality of life of individual, families and community at large. The students are prepared to effectively assist rural-urban households in resource generation and allocation issues. It helps the students to undertake financial management and to make wise analytical consumer choices. The students are also trained for entrepreneurship skill development in terms of self-employment and micro-enterprise management.

The word hospitality comes from the Latin word hospes, which means host or guest. Hospitality means meeting the needs of guests with kindness and goodwill while they are away from their homes. Hospitality industry is diverse enough, thus, offers exciting, challenging and inspiring career with opportunities for a graduate for whom sky is the limit. In order to meet the growing demand of hospitality industry, CSK HP Krishi Vishvavidyalaya started three years B.Sc.

The nomenclature of the course was redesigned to Hospitality and Hotel Administration in the year 2014 and the degree has been reframed as a four year course in the year 2021 following the NEP guidelines.
