Arturo M. Cruz Urrutia is a freshman from San Juan, Puerto Rico, who plans to major in Public Policy at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs. He also intends to pursue a minor in Vocal Performance. Born and raised in a US territory, Arturo has been interested in self-determination from an early age. Through his work at LISD, he seeks to better understand the power dynamics that exist between the countries of the so-called Global North, on the one hand, and Latin American and Caribbean countries, on the other. Beyond the classroom, Arturo is highly involved with the arts on campus as a member of the Princeton University Glee Club, the Chamber Choir, and the Princeton Nassoons, the university’s oldest a cappella group. He is also trained as a classical guitarist. At LISD, he supports Barbara Buckinx’s work on global governance, migration, and refugees.
