Trasviña, who was on campus earlier this week, served as this year’s John Henry Hobart Fellow in Residence, and joined Geneva City officials and members of the community in a roundtable discussion on Fair Housing.

Trasviña was nominated by President Barack Obama to be assistant secretary on April 20, 2009, and confirmed unanimously by the U.S. Senate on May 1, 2009. The Office of Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity administers and enforces federal laws and establishes policies that make sure all Americans have equal access to the housing of their choice.

Before joining the Obama administration, Trasviña served as president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF). There he led the law firm for the Latino community by advancing litigation and public policy in the areas of civil rights, immigration, education and related issues.
