CUNY DOMINICAN STUDIES INSTITUTE

Founded in 1992 and housed 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. CUNY DSI is the locus for a community of scholars, including doctoral fellows, in the field of Dominican Studies and sponsors multidisciplinary research projects The Institute organizes lectures, conferences, and exhibitions that are open to the public.

The Institute is home to the Dominican Archives and the Dominican Library, the first and only institutions in the United States collecting primary and secondary source material about people of Dominican descent. In 2010, the Institute opened the multipurpose room in its Archives and Library facility to art exhibitions, becoming the only exhibit space in New York City devoted to works of art by and about people of Dominican descent.

The CUNY DSI Gallery celebrates and showcases artists with a unique perspective on the Dominican experience, one that transcends the self-imposed boundaries of academic research. It mounts exhibitions by artists whose work explore themes of specific concern to people of Dominican descent wherever they are in world, and about the Dominican Republic itself. The work must be of intellectual, educational, or informational value and must contribute to the mission of the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute.
