Latino Policy Institute @ RWU


The Latino Policy Institute (LPI) is committed to generating and communicating non-partisan data of Latinos in Rhode Island. The LPI will stimulate public policy discourse and enhance the public's understanding of the Rhode Island Latino experience. With this information, Latinos’ social, economic and civic contributions to the state can be better documented, understood and engaged.


The Latino Policy Institute envisions a Rhode Island where:

  • Latinos are socially and economically integrated and civically engaged
  • Rhode Islanders have an understanding of the contributions of Latinos to the state
  • Decision-makers have ready access to reliable and empirically-grounded data on Latinos in Rhode Island
  • The LPI is the primary source of research on Latinos in Rhode Island
