The Cuban Heritage Collection welcomes the opportunity to work with faculty from the University of Miami and area colleges and universities to prepare instructional sessions for undergraduate and graduate classes. Staff can provide an introduction to the Collection and its resources; select and display materials pertinent to a topic being studied in your class; or help you develop assignments using Collection materials. To explore these possibilities, please contact Acting Chair Maria R. Estorino at or 305-284-5854.

University of Miami faculty are eligible to apply for grants in support of undergraduate research in the Collection through the CHC-CLAS Undergraduate Scholars program.

We are also happy to provide tours of the Roberto C. Goizueta Pavilion by appointment. Please contact Gladys Gómez-Rossié at or 305-284-4900 to schedule a tour.
