Hispanic Heritage Month

Join us September 15 through October 15 as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!

Throughout the month, we will be featuring our college’s Latinx faculty 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 a virtual undergraduate research poster exhibition on Thursday, October 7, from 5–7 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 “¡A Nuestra Salud!: Health in the Latinx Community.

We are proud to cosponsor the month’s keynote event, to be held Wednesday, October 6, at 6 p.m., featuring Dr. David Hayes-Bautista, director of UCLA’s Center for the Study of Latino Health and Culture and one of the nation’s foremost experts on Hispanic epidemiology.

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!
