UNF celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month

The UNF Intercultural Center will host Hispanic Heritage Month events and activities for the Osprey community to celebrate. View UNF Hispanic Heritage Month events. National Hispanic Heritage Month, Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, is an official observance recognizing Americans whose ancestry can be traced back to Spain, Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

Hispanic Heritage Month acknowledges the generations of Hispanic Americans who have positively influenced and enriched our nation and society. The significance of this date range relates to the independence observances of Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Mexico, Chile and Belize.

Hispanic Heritage Month, sometimes referred to as Latinx or Latine Heritage Month, represents the inclusion of all identity groups and the experiences of indigenous and non-Spanish speaking people from Latin American countries. Observances during this time focus on sharing the history, cultures, and contributions of Hispanic people.
