#somosVU Hispanic Heritage Month: September 14-October 16

October 2020 HHM

 HHM 2020

In conjunction with the Latino and Latina Studies Program and the Association of Latin American Students, the 2020 Hispanic Heritage Month theme is #somosVU, meaning “We are Vanderbilt.”

This dynamic message calls the community into conversation and emphasizes the values of connection, inclusion, and celebration that are engrained in HHM. #somosVU addresses the need for the visibility of Latinx presence, influence, and representation on campus while honoring the accomplishments of Latinx leaders and groups like ALAS, AMIGOS, LATS, LMSA, SACNAS, and the Latinx Seminarians. #somosVU encourages faculty-student mentor relationships, as well as solidarity among allies, to create opportunities to celebrate and elevate their Latinx peers. #somosVU charges all of us to build an inclusive Latinx community at Vanderbilt University.
