Hispanic Heritage Month

Each year, Americans observe Hispanic Heritage Month from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

Many significant dates fall during Hispanic Heritage Month, including:

  • Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua independence days (Sept. 15);
  • Columbus Day (or Día de la Raza);
  • Mexico’s independence day (Sept. 16); and
  • Chile’s independence day (Sept. 18).

Join the Center for Diversity and Inclusion and the Society for Hispanic Professional Engineers on the evening of October 3, 2014 at 6:00 pm at the Magnuson Hotel for "Danza, Cultura, Ingenieria" an evening with Dr. Carlos Amador and a performance by Mexica Yolotl, an Aztec Dance Group.
