The Center for Intercultural Studies (CIS) is the University's research center for the humanities, culture, and the arts. It also manages and maintains the Chiang Ching-kuo Memorial and Cultural Center and functions as the custodian of a collection of rare books in the Asian Studies and numerous artifacts of Chinese culture. As research and cultural center, it seeks to motivate and sustain the career patching and professional growth of faculty and to provide exposure opportunities for the members of the University community to current discourses in humanities, culture and the arts. Likewise, the CIS endeavors to nurture innovative ideas/projects relative to the research and publication requirements of course programs in the humanities, arts, and culture, which are congruent to the humanization of society, institutional mission-vision, and the articulated preferred future of the university. The research programs of the Center are focused on the following areas: Philippine Studies, Asian Studies, European Studies (with a special emphasis on Spanish language and culture), Women Studies, Culture Studies, and Latin American Studies.
