Congressman Lou Frey: A Legacy

Founded by Congressman Lou Frey, the institute is located at home at the University of Central Florida’s Research Park as part of the College of Sciences’ School of Politics, Security, and International Affairs.

We encourage you to learn more about Lou Frey, Jr. here, as there is so much more to him than what we have posted here. You can also visit his dedicated page on C-Span, where a number of videos illustrate his knowledge of our political system, Congress, and his wonderful character and sense of humor. And check out this interview the Congressman did with a young student about civic education and public service. A really powerful short piece that says so much about his work and leadership.
