About the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies

The Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies (ICCAS) is part of the University of Miami. ICCAS serves as a world-class academic center for the research and study of Cuban and Cuban-American topics. It organizes seminars and lectures, publishes academic research, and offers a special summer program on Cuba for U.S. and foreign students.

ICCAS sponsors academic and outreach programs and helps coordinate Cuban-related activities at the University of Miami including the Casa Bacardi; the Emilio Bacardi Moreau Chair in Cuban Studies; the Cuba Transition Project; the Cuban Heritage Collection at Otto G. Richter Library; and other University components related to Cuban and Cuban-American Studies. ICCAS offers courses on Cuban history and culture, produces publications, and sponsors original research on a variety of topics. It also serves as an educational link between the University, the Cuban exile community, and the South Florida community at-large.

The Cuba Transition Project (CTP), at the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies, University of Miami, is an important and timely project to study and make recommendations for the reconstruction of Cuba once the post-Castro transition begins in earnest. The project was established in 2002 and supported by grants from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) until 2010.

The Casa Bacardi, at the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies, University of Miami, is an interactive center highlighting Cuban history and culture. The Center features: a music pavilion, a products pavilion, the Cuban Information Center, a cinema, a conference room, and exhibits. It is a unique place to appreciate and learn about Cuba's past as well as its present.
