ILS is proud of its efforts to build community both on campus and in the surrounding South Bend area.

For three years, ILS has collaborated with Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) to develop programs that respond to and support the increased enrollment of Latino students in Catholic schools across the country, including a Spanish-English immersion program at Holy Cross School in South Bend.

ILS also maintains partnerships with a number of local nonprofits, including La Casa de Amistad. Through such collaboration, ILS faculty are able to offer a number of community-based learning courses and other opportunities for students.

In addition, we provide opportunities for students to engage their spirituality while at Notre Dame. In 2018, ILS led a Notre Dame delegation to participate in the V National Encuentro of Hispanic Latino Ministry.
