In celebration of the histories and contributions of historically marginalized identities, Harvard commemorates heritage months and identity acknowledgements throughout the year. These recognitions are an opportunity for all members of the community to learn more about the traditions, people, scholarship, history and current experiences of those who've overcome oppression to create opportunities for all. It is important to note that the celebration of each legacy included in the calendar is not time-limited and this calendar is a helpful tool to ensure we're inclusive of all members of our community.
The Harvard Heritage Month Work Group invites you to share other widely recognized cultural observances for consideration. Your ideas and input help raise awareness, and provides opportunities for cross cultural learning and connection at Harvard.
When selecting dates for meetings and events, please consider religious observances. Visit Harvard Divinity School’s Multifaith Calendar for dates, and learn more about and engage with world religions through the Pluralism Project at Harvard University.
