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.

If have any questions please feel free to contact Office of Multicultural Affairs at oma@syr.edu.
