Enrique Murillo Jr. (education) was interviewed for an article about the university’s celebration of National Hispanic Heritage Month.
The university will honor National Hispanic Heritage Month with a number of live and virtual events to celebrate the history, heritage, culture and contributions of Latino Americans.
The virtual event, co-hosted by the Mexican Consulate in San Bernardino, CSUSB, the university’s Latino Education & Advocacy Days project (LEAD) and Associated Students Inc., is the consulate’s official celebration of Mexican Independence Day for the inland region.
Many of the monthlong series of events will be virtual as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. However, that is not preventing CSUSB from offering a wide range of programs to celebrate the month.
To celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, Cal State San Bernardino is hosting a number of events on campus and at its Palm Desert Campus through Oct. 15 to recognize the contributions, heritage and culture of Hispanics and Latino Americans.

About 1,300 Cal State San Bernardino students moved into campus housing Sept. 15, just days away from the first day of classes for the 2019-20 academic year.
