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.

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.
