HOSTOS READS: Books in Common, Books in Community

The Hostos Reads project builds upon the former book of the semester project led by Prof. Robert Cohen since 2005, and currently spearheaded by the Center for Teaching and Learning Advisory Council. The overarching goal of this project is to promote a culture of reading, discussion, and community building through the engagement of a common reading.

These are some of the goals this project plans to achieve:

  •   Community Building

  •   Highlight campus and University resources/student talents

  •   Inter-Departmental Connection

  •   Shared Intellectual Experience

  •   Enhance:

o   Critical Thinking

o   Self-Awareness

o   Diversity and Global Issues

o   Cultural competence

o   Teaching

o   Learning
