National Hispanic Heritage Month National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed annually from September 15 to October 15 and celebrates the histories, cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latin Americans who trace their ancestry to Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America.

The observation began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under the presidency of Lyndon B. Johnson. Hispanic Heritage Week was expanded to a month-long observation in 1988 under the presidency of Ronald Reagan. The Library of Congress has resources on its Hispanic Heritage Month website.

The Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging brings Hispanic Heritage Month events to the Emory & Henry community. Students should go to the Lyceum calendar for any related events for Lyceum credits.
