Since its founding in December 1994, the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies has assigned a high priority to overcoming the many obstacles that impede scholarly collaboration and exchange between individuals and institutions in Cuba and the United States. Guiding these efforts has been the conviction that restoring and enhancing cooperation between the U.S. and Cuban academic communities can play a significant role in promoting peaceful changes within and between our two countries. In the past ten years, the Center has played host to over 90 Cuban visiting scholars for extended periods of work and collaboration in fields archival preservation and indexing, botany, economics, history, medicine, microbiology, organismic and evolutionary biology, political science, public administration and urban planning.
