Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month is observed from September 15th through October 15th by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of the Hispanic and Latinx communities whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, as well as Central and South America.
The mission of Hispanic Heritage Month is to provide students with the opportunity to experience and become immersed within the Hispanic and Latinx culture through various points of reference that will enhance their education, social, and ability to become mature global citizens.
Ways to get involved:
Nominate a student for our Hispanic/Latinx Student spotlight who has made notable contributions toward the development of leadership qualities in their fellow students and themselves. Students will be showcased on the Office of Multicultural Affairs social media pages and website. Click here.
Attend Hispanic Heritage Month Kick-Off where you can immerse yourself in the Latinx and Hispanic culture and celebrate the importance of Hispanic Heritage Month and what it means to you. The Kick-Off tabling event will promote and affirm the Hispanic & Latinx community through positive affirmations and a card writing activity. Click here.
Latinx is an inclusive term to encompass all genders represented in the Latin community
in addition to individuals who identify as Latina/Latino.
