Latinx Heritage Month

The College of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with other units across campus, kicks off the fall semester with Latinx Heritage Month.

Nationally known as Hispanic Heritage month, the College will celebrate this commemoration as Latinx Heritage Month in order to be more inclusive of the identities and experiences of our students, faculty, staff and the community. During Latinx Heritage Month and throughout the academic year, the College is offering student-centered events that honor the histories, cultures, and contributions of Latinx peoples with ancestors and kinship ties across the Caribbean, Central and South America, Mexico, and Spain. Programming will also engage the pressing issues facing Latinx peoples today, and ways to promote the inclusivity of Latinx students on our campus.
