Honoring Heritage & Contribution
September 15 to October 15 is celebrated nationwide as National Hispanic Heritage Month. At Moorpark College, we refer to it as LatinX Heritage Month. It traditionally honors the cultures and contributions of both Hispanic and Latino Americans as we celebrate heritage rooted in all Latin American countries. During this month and throughout the year, we, campus-wide, share history, heritage, and accomplishments of Hispanic and Latino Americans of past and present.
Hispanic refers to a person who is from, or a descendant of someone who is from, a Spanish-speaking country.
Latino/a or Latinx refers to a person who is from, or a descendant of someone who is from, a country in Latin America.
A Rich Culture at Moorpark College
Staff and students make up a large percentage of our overall Moorpark College family. And we are proud of our richness of culture not just in recognition of the month, but year round. Join us at the events we have planned in September, October and year-round. Let's Celebrate Latina/o/x/Hispanic Heritage together!
