Latinx Heritage Month

We are excited to commemorate Latinx Heritage Month, which happens annually from September 15th to October 15th. We take this month to celebrate the cultures, histories, and peoples of Latin America. Latinx people are the fastest growing population in Richmond and that is representative of our student body, faculty, and staff. This year’s planning committee wanted to showcase that diversity through our events and programming. UR will host speakers, performers, and community gatherings of Latinx from Virginia and across the nation. We invite all Latinx Spiders and their allies to celebrate with us!
