I know a couple of CUNY professors involved in HSI who can respond, but they are in the middle of finals at the moment. I'll wait a bit and then point them this way. I can tell you that the search for a director is in process.
Thanks for calling our attention to this important endeavor, Alyssa! Can anyone involved in the development of this new CUNY Haitian Studies Center provide us with an update as to where things stand? Has a director been chosen? What kind of events will the center host or promote, and what kind of involvement does the center expect to have from the public both within and outside of Haiti? I am sure many people on this list would be interested to know more about the center and how we might be able to be involved.
