Calandra Institute for Italian American Studies

Italian Americans represent the largest European ancestral group in New York State, New York City, and at CUNY. Thus, the primary purpose of the Institute is to foster higher education among and about Italian-Americans. In so doing, the Institute serves as an intellectual and cultural center, by (a) stimulating the study of Italian Americans through its research, scholarship, public programming, media outlets, counseling services, study abroad, and ultimately by (b) bringing together a community of scholars who can focus on and enhance the Italian-American experience both within and beyond the Italian-American community.
