Cuban Research Institute

New initiative to show the history of Cuba’s exiles

The University will be starting a new initiative named CasaCuba that will encompass all things Cuban.

The University would like to bring their varying Cuban collections into one centralized area for scholars and the public to see. Cubans, Cuban-Americans and non-Cubans will have a place to admire the history of the people and their search for freedom, according to documents provided to Panther Magazine by CasaCuba.
