  • “How do you teach Physical Fitness online?”

    “How do you teach Physical Fitness online?”
    That was the question Hostos adjunct assistant professor of physical education Elizabeth Cahn had to answer in the wake of Covid-19. After “hours upon hours” of thought and assessment, Cahn found that a mixture of video presentations and conference meetings worked surprisingly well. Some of the videos featured her; others drew on TED talks and a variety of physical education and nutrition-related sources. The video conferences allowed her to monitor her students’ progress as they perfected their exercise routines.

  • Letter from President David Gómez: A Call for Peace and Justice

    Mr. George Floyd’s death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer is an image that few of us will ever forget. Mr. Floyd’s death comes after a string of high-profile killings of Black Americans over the past few months – we remember here Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, and others whose names we do not know. Sadly, the response of the leader of this nation was to fire tear-gas into a crowd of peaceful protesters, threaten to bring military power against its citizens and pose in front of a house of worship with a bible.
