Affiliated with the American Schools of Oriental Research (ASOR) and the Council of American Overseas Research Centers (CAORC), CAARI offers world-class resources through our comprehensive library of materials relating to Cyprus and adjacent geographic regions. Visiting students and scholars can find living quarters as well as technical and logistical support facilities. The Center hosts lectures, seminars and symposia for professional and lay audiences. We also offer fellowship opportunities for students and established senior scholars. The mission of CAARI is to promote studies of Cypriot archaeology and related humanistic disciplines. Historically, Cyprus has been a meeting place and crossroad of civilizations. The Cyprus American Archaeological Research Institute serves a similar role today.
