The Multicultural Center just wrapped up a series of Latinx Heritage Month events to celebrate the experiences of Latinx students on campus and beyond. Students celebrated their identities and learned from each other through both fun and serious activities: mingling, games, and delicious food; but also a faculty book discussion on the experiences of non-gender-conforming Latino/a families, and a panel discussion of crucial issues facing the Latinx community, featuring a of diverse group of community advocates.

Programs like these empower students to own their identities, find and strengthen connections to their campus community and resources and ultimately build on their academic goals through a more dynamic and personalized experience of what Georgia State University has to offer. The Multicultural Center is thrilled and humbled to be a part of this journey with students.

Next up: LGBTQIQA Heritage Month! The Multicultural Center will host a celebration featuring food, games, drag performers, and comedian Sampson! And our monthly faculty book discussion welcomes Dr. Faye Stewart, Associate Professor in the Department of World Languages and Cultures, who will discuss her book German Feminist Queer Crime Fiction: Politics, Justice and Desire.
