Olga Villa-Parra

It is with a heavy heart that the Institute for Latino Studies pays tribute to this phenomenal community leader. Olga will be long remembered for her roles as former director of both the Midwest Council of La Raza and later the Midwest Hispanic Catholic Commission based at the University of Notre Dame. The Institute for Latino Studies was privileged to have her serve as an Advisory Council member, 2001-2010. Our most sincere condolences to her husband Ricardo, her other loved ones, and her close circle of friends.
