Casa Cuba: A Leading Center to Foster Global Understanding and Collaboration on Cuban and Cuban American Affairs

The architectural design phase of CasaCuba, a 50,000-square foot humanities center that would host lectures, academic conferences, community events, and digital and physical exhibits intended to further the study and public understanding of Cuban and Cuban American heritage.

CasaCuba, an initiative of Florida International University, requests $750,000 to secure one-to-one matching funds. This funding will allow CasaCuba to cover the costs of the design phase towards construction of a premier center that will foster global understanding and collaboration on Cuban and Cuban American affairs and culture. This support will broadly impact our ability to offer our students, faculty and the community, in South Florida and the nation at large, the academic, cultural and research resources to engage deeply with the rich Cuban heritage.
