Identity Months & Weeks

Since the early 1900s, the nation has dedicated days, weeks, and months for specific underrepresented communities to highlight, educate and celebrate their contributions to society. To foster equality, diversity, and inclusivity at CSN, we join the nation in honoring several identity months and weeks including the following:

  • September 15 – October 15: Latinx Heritage Month
  • October: LGBTQ Pride Month
  • November: International Education Week
  • February: Black History Month
  • March: Native American Heritage Month
  • March: Women's History Month
  • April: Asian American, Pacific Islander Heritage Month

The Office of Inclusive Learning & Engagement works collaboratively with students, departments, and Diversity Committees to offer programs for each of these identity months and weeks in order to educate and celebrate our nation, our campus, and ourselves. Events are open to everyone at CSN no matter how a person identifies.
