Hispanic Heritage Month

Throughout the month, we will be featuring our college’s Latinx community as part of an initiative led by our Climate and Diversity Committee, which aims to inform and inspire others by shining a light on these individuals’ experiences, their accomplishments, and their motivations for pursuing careers in science.

We will also be hosting an undergraduate research poster exhibition on Thursday, October 6, from 5 to 7 p.m. (more details below).

Additionally, there will be events throughout the month at University Park, organized by the Hispanic Heritage Month planning committee, with the theme “Nuestra Música*: Identity, Culture and Resistance.”

We are proud to cosponsor the month’s keynote event, to be held Thursday, September 22, at 6 p.m., featuring Betto Arcos, A music journalist and contributor to NPR since 2009, Betto Arcos is the author of the book Music Stories from the Cosmic Barrio, a collection of stories about music from Latin America, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

Please join us in honoring and celebrating the historic background, culture, heritage, and many influences of the Hispanic community here at Eberly, Penn State, and beyond!
