Heartfelt Farewell to Former Chair Dr. Louis Mendoza

To the Friends of Chicano and Latino Studies

It has been my privilege for the past ten years to work with Dr. Louis Mendoza in his capacity as a Professor and Chair of the Department, as well as in his roll as Associate Vice Provost in the Office for Equity and Diversity. It is with sadness that we announce his departure from the University of Minnesota. Yet we are excited by the possibilities that await Dr. Mendoza in his new position with Arizona State University. Dr. Mendoza has been a teacher, friend, and mentor to many students, as well as a trusted colleague to faculty across this campus and beyond.

Former Chicano and Latino Studies student, Luz María Hernandez, along with Virginia Gibbs have published a new book about the May 2008 ICE raid of Agriprocessors in Postville: Shattered Dreams: The Story of a Historic ICE Raid in the Words of the Detainees.
