The Hostos Honors Program is Heading to Cambridge for the NRHC Conference
by Karina Castro, Honors Program & Immersion Workshops Coordinator
Members of the Hostos Community College Honors Program have been invited to attend the Northeast Regional Honors Council Conference, taking place on March 31st – April 3rd in Cambridge, MA. The NRHC conference theme this year is Migration, which seeks to examine the concept in a broader perspective. Student papers, posters, and roundtable discussion topics will be presented throughout the weekend.
Two Hostos Scholars were selected to present at the NRHC conference, Mr. Daequan Leslie and Mr. Feissal Traore. Mr. Daequan Leslie will be presenting a paper on “Biodiversity vs Globalization,” which analyzes these concepts and their relations, and seeks to find a balance between the two. Mr. Daequan Leslie has been working with Professor Ernest Ialongo throughout the semester to create a final paper and presentation for the conference. Mr Feissal Traore will be leading a roundtable discussion on “The Impact of Technology and the Natural Sciences on Migration.” Mr. Traore is working with Professor Nelson Nunez-Rodriguez to conduct research to present at the conference. Both students are also preparing their work for presentation to the College community as part of their Honors Program Contracts.
The Honors Program will be travelling with the two presenters to attend the conference and to explore the city of Cambridge.
