CUNY DOMINICAN STUDIES INSTITUTE

Founded in 1992 at The City College of New York, the Dominican Studies Institute of the City University of New York (CUNY DSI) is the nation’s first, university-based research institute devoted to the study of people of Dominican descent in the United States and other parts of the world. CUNY DSI’s mission is to produce and disseminate research and scholarship about Dominicans and about the Dominican Republic. The Institute houses the Dominican Archives and the Dominican Library, the first and only institutions in the United States collecting primary and secondary source material about Dominicans. In 2010, the Institute opened the doors of its Archives and Library facility to exhibitions of art by and about people of Dominican descent, becoming the first major institution in New York City to devote its exhibition space exclusively to such artwork.
