UIC Latinx Heritage Month

Red background with Latin Heritage Month icon in yellow, pink, and blue.  Details in orange font color.

Since 2017, students have brought the UIC community together to celebrate the beauty and complexity of Latinx culture. We now invite you to become a part of this year’s Latinx Heritage Month planning committee. Students in the committee will get to participate in event planning and most importantly, make new friends and connections! This is a student ran series, so the ideas of events, themes and planning is decided by the committee and supported by the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) and Latin American Recruitment and Educational Services (LARES), students will be given the guidance and tools to bring their ideas to life. We are going to hit to ground running!

UIC LHM 2021 Poster

LHM 2021 theme was Los Colores de Nuestra Cultura, otherwise known as The Colors of Our Culture. Intentionally, there are many interpretations of the theme. Art and color are a big part of the culture regardless of where you come from, and ultimately the various colors represent something different to various LatinX communities.
