Haitian Studies Institute

The CUNY-HSI is an academic unit aimed to encourage and support studies on Haiti and Haitians living abroad.

The institute’s main commitment is to engage in analysis and research to better understand policies and projects girded toward Haiti and the Haitian community, and policies that link scholarship programs on Haiti to social actions impacting the lives of Haitian populations and other racial and ethnic communities.
