The Latino Policy Institute at Roger Williams University is committed to generating and communicating non-partisan data of Latinos in Rhode Island. LPI stimulates public policy discussions and enhances the public’s understanding of the Rhode Island Latino experience.
LPI is made up of professionals representing a diverse range of sectors and disciplines. We are anchored at Roger Williams University and are a program of the University Outreach & Engagement Division under the Office of the President of RWU.
On October 15, 2013, LPI released an info graphic titled “Work in Progress: Latinos in the RI Workforce” in partnership with the Economic Progress Institute. The info graphic revealed that as the fastest growing ethnic group in Rhode Island, Latinos will play a more prominent role in the future of the state’s workforce and economic growth.
