  • Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month at SJSU
    Latinx Heritage Month, historically known as National Hispanic Heritage Month, is celebrated throughout the United States between September 15 and October 15. Several dates this month mark anniversaries of independence for Latin American countries - including Chile, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua - which is why Latinx Heritage Month begins in mid-September. This history serves as a good reminder of the vast diversity of our Latinx community.
  • Remembering September 11, 2001
    On Sunday, many of us will participate in events that memorialize the events of September 11, 2001, and remember those who lost their lives that day. I hope you will join me as we pause to reflect on the victims, their families, friends and others whose lives were forever changed.
