THE CUNY DSI Youtube CHANNEL
The CUNY Dominican Studies institute has established a YouTube Channel to share the wealth of its video collection with as broad an audience as possible. On this Channel, the Institute has begun to post videos of its public events, concerts, art exhibitions, conferences, panel presentations, and other academic events.
This section of our site will grow as we continue editing and digitizing the videos for YouTube broadcasting. The CUNY DSI YouTube Channel is located at: http://www.youtube.com/user/cunydsi
