Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month

In honor of Latino/Hispanic Heritage Month (LHHM), Syracuse University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs, within the Division of Enrollment and the Student Experience, hosts a series of events from September 15 to October 15 in collaboration with campus departments and student organizations.

Through the LHHM celebration, we strive to foster a better understanding of Hispanic and Latino cultures through varied programming both on campus and in the larger Syracuse area. From lectures, to performances, luncheons, semi-formals, and art exhibitions, LHHM provides the campus and local community with a wonderful opportunity to reflect on, learn more about, and experience the deeply rich traditions of Latino culture.
