About the  Croatian Ethnic Institute

Hrvatski etnički institut

The Croatian Ethnic Institute was founded by the Croatian Franciscans in 1975 and incorporated as an educational and scientific corporation in 1977. The purposes of the CEI are:

      • Establish and maintain a central collection on Croats and their descendents in the United States, Canada, and other countries to which Croats have immigrated. The CEI Museum, Archives, Library, and Research Center all meet this purpose.
         
      • Collect and preserve books, periodicals and magazines, manuscripts and artifacts relating to the heritage of some 2.5 million people of Croatian descent in North America.
         
      • Develop, produce, and promote materials useful for the study of the Croatian language and heritage.
         
      • Encourage and conduct research on the sociological, demographic, religious, and political aspects of Croatian and other migrations and their impact on the way of life in the countries to which they have migrated.
