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.

--------------------

Fundado en 1992, el Instituto de Estudios Dominicanos de la Universidad de la Ciudad de Nueva York (CUNY DSI), con sede en el City College de Nueva York, es el único centro de investigación universitario de los Estados Unidos dedicado exclusivamente a la investigación académica sobre las personas de ascendencia dominicana en los Estados Unidos y otras partes del mundo. Su misión es producir y difundir conocimiento académico sobre los dominicanos y la República Dominicana. Además, el Instituto promueve el avance de la enseñanza en el área de Estudios Dominicanos. El Instituto alberga el Archivo Dominicano y la Biblioteca Dominicana, las primeras y únicas instituciones en los Estados Unidos dedicadas a recoger fuentes primarias y secundarias sobre los dominicanos. En el 2010, el Instituto también abrió sus puertas para exposiciones de arte de tema dominicano o creados por artistas de origen dominicano.
