Recognizing Latin, Latinx, Hispanic Heritage Month

This month, Adler University celebrates the heritage, independence and contributions of those from more than twenty Spanish-speaking countries including Mexico and those in the Caribbean and Central and South America during Latin, Latinx, Hispanic Heritage Month.

We recognize Latin, Latinx, Hispanic Heritage Month during a 30-day period because many Latin America countries celebrate the anniversary of their independence during September and October. As we honor the contributions and accomplishments of Latinx countries on American culture, Adler University is proud of our Latinx students, alumni and faculty for their contributions to our programming, curriculum and university culture.

Hispanic Heritage Month began in 1968, as Hispanic Heritage Week. Twenty years later, the week expanded into a month-long recognition in 1988. Adler University recognizes the more culturally preferred term of “Latinx” during this month.  The term, “Latinx,” relates to people of Latin America descent and is used to encompass gender neutral or non-binary populations.
