Brooklyn College could have a new Haitian Studies Institute next year, nearly two years after a proposal for it was put forth. Assistant vice president of the school’s Communications and Marketing Office, Jason Carey, told Caribbean Life’s Alley Olivier that they anticipate the initiative will be approved in the spring.

Housing the center at Brooklyn College would be fitting, given that the borough has the largest number of Caribbeans, Haitians especially, in the city.

The university’s own population reflects a large Haitian base at both the student and faculty levels, which helped in the conversations pushing the idea to fruition.

The institute will serve as an academic research facility.

“Like other institutes, it’s an academic-focused institute in particular the study of Haiti and Haitian people in the diaspora. I think the primary goal is for the institute to establish itself as a leading research center at an international level, which is really important,” Carey said.

Update: The CUNY-Haitian Studies Institute has opened at Brooklyn College, Caribbean Life reported on May 6, 2016.
