Madeline Ford, library director at Hostos Community College, said the grant will help increase understanding and respect about Islam. She observed that many students lead insular lives, and the more opportunity they have to consider different points of view, the more enlightened they will be as citizens of the world. “The mission of the library and college has always been to prepare students to become global citizens, and this award will help them access resources that develop their understanding and appreciation of Muslim cultures.”
