About Hostos Reads

The Hostos Reads: Books in Common, Books in Community project builds upon the former “Book of the Semester” project led by Prof. Robert Cohen since 2005, and is spearheaded currently 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.

The goals this project plans to achieve include:

  • Community Building
  • Highlight campus and University resources/student talents
  • Cross-Institutional and Multidisciplinary Connection
  • Shared Intellectual Experience
  • Promote and enhance: Critical Thinking, Self-Awareness, Diversity and Global Issues, Cultural competence, Teaching & Learning.
