Annual Heritage Months & Observances

Throughout the year, UHart commemorates national heritage months and identity acknowledgements. These recognitions are an opportunity for all members of the community to continue learning and engaging in meaningful programming that recognizes, examines, and values historical legacies of all identities, celebrates its present, engages the diversity of lived experiences within our community, enhances our awareness, and raises visibility for communities across campus and beyond.

The Harrison Libraries celebrate these monthly observances with displays of books, music, and other materials to highlight the diversity within our collections, which reflect our diverse campus community.
