Hispanic Heritage Month 2021


Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

National Hispanic Heritage Week started in 1968 and in 1988 was expanded to 30 days, September 15-October 15. The dates of Hispanic Heritage Month were selected to include the Independence Day celebrations of seven Latin American countries, as well as to incorporate Día de la Raza.

From Sept. 15 through Oct. 15, National Hispanic Heritage Month commemorates the culture and history of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. At the University of Miami, students, and faculty and staff members prepare programs to encourage learning, dialogue, and celebrations. The following is a list of events that the sponsors hope will encourage learning, dialogue, and celebrating among all members of the University community.
