Touchstone - Spring 2011

Volume 4.1

This is the fourth edition of Touchstone, the scholarly journal of the college. Its publication continues the vibrant and forward-looking aspirations of its founders and editors to provide a public medium of communication for all facets of faculty scholarship at Eugenio Maria de Hostos Community College. Ten years into the 21st Century the challenges for community colleges is clearly evident. More and more of this nation’s first-year college-age students are enrolling at public two- year institutions. Hostos Community College, along with many other urban-based colleges throughout the country, has demonstrated the critical and strategic role it plays in preparing a highly motivated, articulate, and competent workforce. Hostos faculty, staff, and administrators have shown what they can do in preparing the future workforce. The scholarly writings in this journal are but a small indication of the commitment and the capability of Hostos as an institution to contribute to the nation’s future prosperity.
