Dan Hostetler

Dan Hostetler, Horticulture, Plant & Soil Science chair, was recognized as an E. (Kika) de la Garza Fellow in the U.S. Department of Agriculture?s Hispanic-Serving Institutions National Program. Hostetler is one of 20 faculty from Hispanic-serving educational institutions so named.
The USDA fellows program was established in 1998 as part of the USDA-Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) Leadership Group, a national body appointed by the Secretary of Agriculture and the President of HACU, a San Antonio, Texas-based association founded in 1986. The goal of the program is to advance USDA’s relationship with participating HSIs and enhance fellows’ professional growth, while fostering workforce diversity and strengthening the nation’s capacity to provide high quality education and increased opportunities for Hispanic-Americans.
