The Institute for Latino Studies (ILS) at the University of Notre Dame is hosting several Hispanic Heritage Month events on campus. The lectures, presentations, movies, and cultural events are designed to demonstrate how the entire Notre Dame community is enriched by the work ethic, aspirations, and commitment of Latino students, faculty, and staff.

September 15 marked the beginning of the annual U.S. observance of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs through Oct. 15. (You may also see the celebration referred to in Latino, Latinx or Latine Heritage Month.)

“During National Hispanic Heritage Month, we honor the diverse history of generations of Latinos, whose aspirations and achievements have shaped the soul of our nation,” U.S. President Joseph R. Biden wrote in A Proclamation on National Hispanic Heritage Month, 2023.
