Nationally, Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated Sept. 15-Oct.15. Alternatively, at the U, "Latinx celebration" is a way to recognize the intersecting identities that exist within the Latinx/Hispanic community and an opportunity to showcase cultures, experiences and stories from the community. Learn more about his year's theme, Celebrate/é, in the video below.

If your school, college or department has a Latinx Celebration Month event in the works, submit your information through this form. These events will be compiled into one calendar and assist with cohesive outreach efforts across the entire U system. For any questions, please contact Xris Macias at

Please keep in mind that Latinx programming should not be limited to these dates. We must strive to honor, celebrate and engage with our Latinx community every day, 12 months a year. We encourage everyone to use the LatinxX12 mark on their event promotion to honor individuals’ intersecting identities not only during nationally recognized months year-round in recognition of the work being done to create inclusive spaces where everyone feels they belong.
