"All human beings are our brothers and sisters, all are our neighbors especially when in need. It matters not whether they are black or white, red or yellow, men or women, Eastern or Western, Northern or Southern, young or old, intelligent or dull, good or bad, attractive or repulsive. I believe that since we are all created in the image of God, I cannot love God without loving and serving them as best I can."

Dr. Luis Fraga and HA of ND at the Institute for Latino Studies
Did you know?
Thanks to the Institute for Latino Studies (ILS), we are able to trace the history of Latinos on campus. In 1864, Alexandro Perea of New Mexico became the first Spanish-surnamed student to enroll at the University. HA of ND is a proud supporter of ILS. Established in 1999, the institute continues the legacy of Dr. Julian Samora by fostering the understanding of the U.S. Latino experience. Led by Dr. Luis Fraga and his staff, they are preparing tomorrow’s future Latinx leaders through research, education, and overall community support.
