Author: Institute for Latino Studies

"Notre Dame made a committment to have an Institute for Latino Studies in 1999 out of a sense of its central mission as a Catholic institution to provide opportunities for predominantly Catholic immigrant communities. I knew that the University was unquestionably serious about doing everything it could to make Notre Dame the best place in the country to understand these communities and their future role in the United States. That is an exciting opportunity." says Luis Fraga.

In this video, ILS distinguished professor Luis Fraga addresses Latino politics and the role of the Institute for Latino Studies at Notre Dame. Fraga is the Arthur Foundation Endowed Professor of Transformative Latino Leadership and professor of political science at the University.
