We are excited to feature a few of our Hispanic-identified faculty in honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month (NHHM) from September 15 to October 15.

We want to highlight the incredible diversity we have on campus.  Throughout NHHM, you will find out more about our faculty and student organizations by participating in activities throughout the month to celebrate.

Many students, staff, and faculty are probably curious about what NHHM is.  

NHHM begins on September 15 as a celebration of the anniversary of independence for five Latin American countries in 1921: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.  NHHM used to be only a week long but became a month-long celebration in 1989.

Fresno State continues to celebrate the diversity we have on campus as a Hispanic-serving institution by supporting and encouraging involvement in Hispanic culture-based programs such as Chicano & Latin American Studies (CLAS) and Los Danzantes de Aztlan.

For the next month, keep a close eye on our social media for the opportunity to win prizes as we will commemorate with activities involving our Hispanic-identified faculty.
