The month-long initiative will include virtual highlights of members of the Seton Hall community, academic and artistic work, as well as events that explore the diversity of Latin American descent, history, food, music and more!

Thank you to our HHM Sponsor:
During this month's celebration, we take a look at what it means to identify as Hispanic or Latinx/a/o and how that identity takes form in American society. By Navigating Latinidad, we can explore the labels chosen for us and their respective histories.
How does Latinidad affect us in the workplace, our college experience, and beyond?
During our Hispanic Heritage Month, our deep dive will help us explore the wide variety of food, folklore, and our musical roots allowing us to find cultural similarities while celebrating our unique identity.
