Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month at Rio Salado College!

September 15-October 15 is National Hispanic American Heritage Month. This is a time where we honor and pay tribute to the generations of Hispanic Americans who have helped shape our nation. Hispanic Heritage Month offers us an opportunity to reflect on the vital contributions Hispanic Americans have made to culture, politics, science, cuisine, and society as a whole.

Join us as we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a special event and fun resources from our library staff.

Fostering Belonging Through Stories

On Thursday, October 6, Rio Salado College in partnership with the American Public University System (APUS) will be hosting a Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging webinar for Hispanic Heritage Month. The theme for this year’s series of webinars is Fostering Belonging Through Stories. The webinar will run from noon to 1:30 p.m. on Oct. 6.
