National Hispanic Heritage Week started in 1968 and in 1988 was expanded to 30 days, September 15-October 15. The dates of Hispanic Heritage Month were selected to include the Independence Day celebrations of seven Latin American countries, as well as to incorporate Día de la Raza.
The University of Miami coordinates several activities during the month that provide an opportunity for the university community to celebrate the achievements and contributions of Hispanic Americans.
If you are interested in being a part of the committee and would like to help plan one of the events, or you would like information on becoming a sponsor, please contact MSA at 305.284.2855.
