We want to extend a warm welcome to all. The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute at Seton Hall University is dedicated to empowering Latino students. With the Institute’s support and guidance, students can fulfill their potential as servant leaders through cultural programming, designed to build stronger linkages to their heritage but also through education, academic scholarship, mentorship, skill development and critical thinking.

The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute was created through a generous gift from our benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Joseph and Carmen Ana Unanue. Built on a rich legacy of service to the Seton Hall Latino community, the Joseph A. Latino Institute had its genesis as the Puerto Rican Institute, founded in the early 1970’s. Back then and now, our Catholic faith leads us as we aim to fulfill two intertwined missions, that of service and scholarship. The Institute offers excellent programs, available to all Seton Hall undergraduate and graduate students (scholarships only).


Inspired by the legacy of Joseph A. Unanue, the Latino Institute at Seton Hall University advances, educates, and transforms students into the next generation of servant leaders in our ever changing global society.


The Joseph A. Unanue Latino Institute will be known globally for developing outstanding leaders in science, business, the arts and public service.
