    With the continued growth of the Puerto Rican and other Latino communities and the resultant economic, political and social changes, Centro is expanding into new areas of research and cultural engagement, enriching our current services to better serve the needs of our community at this time of great change.

    “For 40 years, since the Center for Puerto Rican Studies was established in the political turmoil of the 1970s, we have evolved by responding to the dynamic needs of our community,” said Centro Director Edwin Meléndez. “We are currently in a position to harness opportunities of enhancing Centro’s traditional concerns, such as by expanding our already renowned Library and Archives and devising new programs for supporting Puerto Rican artists and showing their work, upgrading our technical online capabilities and delving into new areas of research.”
