The celebrations, discussions and events are designed to provide the CSUSB community with the chance to explore and become immersed in Hispanic and Latinx culture via different points of reference.
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.
