National Hispanic Heritage Month 2021

National Hispanic Heritage Month welcome graphic

From September 15 until October 15, we recognize the numerous contributions that individuals of Hispanic origin have made within our nation by celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month. In acknowledging the positive impact that generations of Hispanics have brought to American society and culture, we hope to bring light to the benefits of diversity and cultural competence, which are core tenets of effective social work practice.
