Division for Institutional Advancement Welcome to the Division for Institutional Advancement. We embrace the opportunity to work with you in helping to provide higher educational opportunities to traditionally underserved students in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural learning environment. As a partner in our shared goals there are many ways to support Hostos, now and in the future, with gifts that will “keep on giving”. Hostos has experienced a wonderful growth since its inception in 1968 and we welcome your generosity in our continued expansion.
