Hostos Community College [Bronx, NY]

An article by David Gonzalez of The New York Times on September 28, 2014 covered a birthday reception honoring Ramon J. Jimenez for his efforts in the mid-1970's in support of Hostos Community College.  Jimenez and others organized successful opposition to a proposed merger of the institution.  Their efforts helped pave the way for Hostos to continue as a bilingual institution.

Eugenio MarĂ­a de Hostos Community College was founded in 1968 and is now part of The City University of New York (CUNY) system.  Hostos currently serves over 7,000 students.
