In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 – October 15), the Office of Multicultural Student Services seeks to create a collaborative lineup of events that promote the contributions of Hispanic Americans to our society and the diversity of the culture. Events are free and open to the public and are a great way to satisfy your cultural event requirements. Events will run from September 22nd to November 2nd.

The second event of this series will be a discussion entitled “The #43 Missing Students.” This event will be held on Thursday, September 24th at 11am in the Center for Latin@ Studies IRC 131. Below is a description of what topics this event will cover.

This event will be “An open discussion and presentation hosted by Signma Lambda Gamma on the Missing 43: Mexico’s Disappeared Students. “Caravana 43″ is centered around human rights violations and the events of September 26, 2014, when 43 students at Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers College disappeared after witnesses saw them clash with local police. The students are still missing.”
