Wide-ranging celebrations mark Hispanic Heritage Month

2016 Fall Address Reflecting Sacramento State’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, Hispanic Heritage Month has expanded this year into a seven-week celebration designed to bring the campus community – and the greater Sacramento community – together to celebrate the University’s multicultural identity.

The full calendar of free public activities – presented by the Serna Center, the Dreamer Resource Center, and the College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) – includes a variety of speakers, discussions, and events, and will conclude Friday, Oct. 28.

Sac State was designated as a Hispanic-Serving Institution in February 2015 by the U.S. Department of Education. Approximately 27 percent of undergraduate full-time equivalent students are Hispanic. In 2010, Sac State was designated an Asian American Native American Pacific Islander-Serving Institution, as well.

The month kicked off with a panel on “Inspirational Models of Latino Success,” bringing Latino alumni and current students together. Upcoming events include a session on “The Family and Celebrating Hispanic Heritage” during Student Academic Success Day on Monday, Sept. 26; Tu Voto Es Tu Voz, a forum encouraging students to engage in the political process; and the fourth annual Feria de Educación on Oct. 1, offering information to families on college planning, scholarships, and financial aid, plus free children’s books, exhibits and entertainment.
