Latinx Heritage Month

Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 Logo

Each year, Hispanic and Latinx Americans celebrate the contributions and cultures of Hispanic Americans whose heritage can be traced to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The observation began as Hispanic Heritage week and was expanded to cover a 30-day period from mid-September through mid-October.  Ursinus is proud to mark Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 with a number of events, activities and conversations that celebrate Hispanic culture and traditions.
