Cultural Heritage Celebrations

Latin Heritage Month

Latino Heritage Month is nationally celebrated and recognized from September 10 - October 15.  The historic context of this celebration is to increase awareness and celebrate not only the contributions, but the various Diasporas that reflect the Latino community.  The celebration is designed to cover a variety of facets that have impacted us locally, as well as globally. The goal for the 2012 St. John’s University Latino Heritage Celebration is to recognize and celebrate the positive impact of Latino culture; as well as foster civic and social responsibility, leadership, education, and spirituality among our St. John's student population through our programming.  Join us as we are “Celebrating History and Empowering
