Latinx Community

We are excited to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month, which begins September 15 and ends October 15. With the diverse cultures represented in our Harvard students, staff, faculty, researchers and fellows, this month gives us an opportunity to celebrate the legacies, histories, and contributions by our community who comes from the Caribbean, Central and South American, Spain, and Mexico. 

Learn more about Harvard and National Latinx engagements below or add your event on our calendar or by reaching out to edib@harvard.edu. Events will continue to be added throughout the month.
