Researching, preserving & sharing the puerto rican experience

Centro, The Center for Puerto Rican Studies at Hunter College, is the largest university-based research institute, library, and archive dedicated to the Puerto Rican experience in the United States.

As Puerto Ricans in the diaspora, we know the impact of our communities across the United States. Every day we continue to see how important it is to foster an informed understanding, and appreciation of our legacies. We continue documenting, preserving and disseminating our precious history to ensure a clear, authentic understanding of our communities, our contributions, and our challenges. Be part of this effort with your donation.
