San Antonio Mayor Julián Castro will visit the University of Notre Dame campus at 7 p.m. April 7 (Monday) in DeBartolo Hall, Room 101, for an event titled “American Politics in the 21st Century: Latino Civic Engagement.” Joining the mayor on stage will be his former Stanford faculty mentor Luis Fraga. The two will discuss the mayor’s journey into the world of politics.
This is the third collaborative event of the American Politics series between Multicultural Student Programs and Services’ Building Bridges Lecture Series, the Institute for Latino Studies Transformative Latino Leadership Lecture Series and the Rooney Center for the Study of American Democracy.
A 39-year-old San Antonio native, Castro is the youngest mayor of a Top 50 American city. First elected in 2009, Castro was re-elected to a third term in 2013. Throughout his tenure, Castro has focused on attracting well-paying jobs in 21st-century industries, positioning San Antonio to be a leader in the new energy economy and raising educational attainment across the spectrum.
