Honoring and celebrating the history, culture and contributions of citizens of Latin heritage – that’s the goal of Latinx Heritage Month in September.

Missouri State University will host several events to engage and educate the campus and larger community about Latinx heritage. 

The Asian population in the United States comprises many culturally and geographically diverse ethnic subgroups. Their achievements and contributions to the country are many.   

Missouri State University will celebrate Asian Heritage Month throughout April to highlight the history, culture and traditions of Asians and Pacific Islanders. 

Maya Angelou said, “The more you know of your history, the more liberated you are.”

February is Black History Month in America. It’s an occasion to remember and celebrate the contributions of Black people to our country and the world. It’s also an occasion to shed light on history that’s not always mentioned or often overlooked. 

Over the years, the LGBTQ movement has made great strides in fighting for equality and acceptance. However, misconceptions about and injustices toward the LGBTQ community are still prevalent.

In light of LGBTQ History Month this October, members of Missouri State University’s LGBTQ community will come together to showcase LGBTQ pride. There will be several events on campus to create visibility around queer and transgender identity. They are free and open to the public.
