Our celebration of Latinx/a/o Heritage month is built around the theme "Be proud of your past, Embrace the future." Each of the events in the series is described in the calendar entries linked below. From a parade of nations represented in our campus community to thought-provoking discussions featuring faculty members and invited guests, the month's offerings will engage and inform, as well as entertain.
