CSUSB Hispanic Heritage Month

From September 15 through October 15, CSUSB will conduct their third annual celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month, featuring a multitude of events at both their San Bernardino and Palm Desert campuses to highlight the accomplishments, heritage, and culture of Hispanics and Latinx populations with roots from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central and South America.

The objective of Hispanic Heritage Month is to provide students with the chance to explore and become immersed in Hispanic and Latinx culture via different points of reference that will improve their education, socialization, and capacity to become mature global citizens.

Latinx is an inclusive term to encompass all genders represented in the Latin community in addition to individuals who identify as Latina/Latino. 

Throughout Hispanic Heritage Month, CSUSB will showcase community leaders, faculty, staff and students around significant themes in Latinx culture. The theme this year is Embracing Our Gente, Raices, and Identities to Define our Future.
