The Institute for Latino Studies advances understanding of the fastest-growing and youngest population in the United States and in the U.S. Catholic Church.

ILS strengthens Notre Dame’s mission to prepare transformative leaders in education, the professions, the arts, economic and civic participation, faith, and family life among Latinos and all members of our society.

Come visit ILS at its new home! Now located on the 3rd floor of Bond Hall.


Dear Members of the ILS Family:

We write to inform you that we are postponing our ILS 20th Anniversary Celebration and all Spring events until the Fall 2020.  It is the only responsible action to take, given directives that were issued by the University this morning.  A copy of Fr. John Jenkins letter can be read here. As many of you know, similar directives are being issued by a number of universities around the country.

We are, nonetheless, delighted that we will be able to include this celebration within our activities for Hispanic Heritage Month 2020, pending any new developments.  We will keep you posted once we have a specific date.

Please let us know if you have any questions at .

In the name of Our Lady’s University,

The ILS Team
