Hispanic Heritage Month Events at Chapman University

Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated to honor the contributions and cultural significance of Hispanic and Latinx individuals throughout the nation’s history. During this month-long observance, which runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, Chapman University will pay tribute to the diverse heritage and enduring influence these communities have had in the U.S.
