Honoring and Lifting Up SCU's Diverse Community
The Cultural Heritage Months are periods within the year that are designated to celebrate and acknowledge various ethnic and marginalized groups. These are times not only to celebrate, but also to educate others on various groups’ histories and contributions to American History. These are important times that help us to understand some of our own cultures and identities, as well as others.
SCU is committed to further enhancing and expanding its efforts around these Cultural Heritage months and other important commemorative holidays. The Cultural Heritage months are an important tool is helping to reinforce the importance of belonging on campus and our ongoing commitment to a diverse and inclusive community.

How to Get Involved
The Office for Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) and the Office for Multicultural Learning (OML) within the Inclusive Excellence Division will be providing a more focused and coordinated institutional approach to the respective Cultural Heritage and commemorative holidays months. They will work in close collaboration with faculty, staff, and student partners in providing the SCU community opportunities to continue our collective learning and engagement that recognizes, examines, and values historical legacies of a diverse array of identities.
Each heritage month will have a focused committee that will be responsible for creating the calendar of events and partner in promoting the month. Inclusive Excellence through ODI and OML will provide an anchor event for each of the heritage months.
