The Center for Italian Studies has three specific purposes:
- first, to stimulate interdisciplinary research on the part of the local academic community on issues that bring about a better understanding of Italy and Italian Americans;
- second, to become a national and international focus for Italian and Italian American affairs;
- third, to promote a better understanding of Italy and Italian Americans by bringing to the general public the latest scholarly findings on Italy and Italian Americans and by organizing cultural activities of general interest.
