Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience

Latinx Heritage Month

Every September, the Student Life Multicultural Center sponsors a month-long series of events in observance of this annual national event highlighting Hispanic/Latino contributions.

Here at Ohio State, we will have many interesting programs and presentations throughout the month. Hispanic Heritage Month is a time to celebrate Hispanic/Latino rich cultures, ethnicity and pride.

Ally Week is an initiative that seeks to reach out to the entire Ohio State campus community in an effort to encourage students, staff and faculty to act in solidarity with and on behalf of people who are of a different race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religious or spiritual identity, gender identity/expression, socioeconomic class, or other identity different than their own.

Each of the week's events and programs are heavily focused on the themes of awareness, education and action. The Week of Action sponsors, The Student Life Multicultural Center and Residence Life, are invested in working with the Ohio State community to share the information and tools necessary for everyone to actively participate as an "ally" to members of our campus and Central Ohio community.

At the conclusion of the week, we hope that all participants will have a better understanding of their fellow Buckeyes and have learned new tools in advocating for one another.
