The University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, and their affiliates announced a diverse calendar of events in celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month 2020. The comprehensive activities are themed according to Pitt’s Latino Student Association’s four core principles: culture, education, social, and advocacy.
The events, many in virtual mode due to Covid-19, include dance lessons, networking sessions, workshops, cooking demos, and more!
See below for an event summary as listed on University of Pittsburgh’s website on September 12 or visit their Hispanic Heritage Month Page for up to date information.
Many individuals and organizations work tirelessly to bring this event to our community including: a University-wide committee, chaired by Dr. Gina Garcia and the Latino Student Association (LSA) and co-hosted by the Hispanic Latinx Professional Association (HLPA), the Latin American Graduate Organization of Students, Center for Latin American Studies, Student Affairs, Hillman Library, School of Education, Graduate School of Public Health, Carnegie Mellon University, and other affiliates.
The committee includes representatives from across the University of Pitt campus, as well as those from local organizations and other colleges and universities in Pittsburgh, who are striving to create a collaborative calendar of events intended to create awareness of Hispanics/Latinas/os/xs in Pittsburgh and the broader U.S. context.
