A Letter from Luis Fraga, Faculty Director of the Institute for Latino Studies

Congratulations and welcome to the Notre Dame family!

You and your parents should be very proud of what you have accomplished and I know that you will be even more proud of what you will accomplish in your undergraduate studies here at Notre Dame.

One of my affiliations at Notre Dame is as Director of the Institute for Latino Studies, where I hold the Rev. Donald P. McNeill, C.S.C., Chair in Transformative Latino Leadership.

We have thirty-one affiliated faculty members from across the University and 67 supplemental majors and minors from all different colleges as well.

If you have any interests in more deeply understanding one of the fastest growing ethnoracial groups in the United States and in the Catholic Church, please come and drop by our offices at Bond Hall and learn about all of the exciting opportunities we have for you. READ MORE >>
