IUPLR is a national consortium of university-based centers dedicated to the advancement of the Latino intellectual presence in the United States. IUPLR works to expand the pool of Latino scholars and leaders and increase the availability of policy-relevant Latino-focused research. IUPLR headquarters, located at the University of Notre Dame, and the IUPLR Washington DC Office, located at the University of California Washington Center, work to strengthen the network of centers and to enhance their institutional capacity.
- Promote comparative, interdisciplinary, and policy-focused research;
- Develop collaborative national programs that support Latino students and faculty in higher education;
- Establish collaborative projects with scholars in the arts, culture and the humanities; and
- Disseminate publications generated by the IUPLR national network of scholars.
IUPLR is pleased to announce the publication of “The Economic Impact of the Landscaping and Lawn Care Services Industry on US Latinos” by IUPLR researchers Juan Carlos Guzmán, Cynthia Duarte, and Daniel Martinez. Among the report’s key findings are that Latino households where at least one member is employed by the landscaping and lawn care services industry obtain more than 5 billion in annual income.
