National Hispanic-Latino/a Heritage Month Celebration 

Part of The First 50 Days Program at Miami University welcoming Class 2023!

The UniDiversity Festival is a collaborative effort to promote diversity and inclusion in our community, and it is also a chance to learn more about the valuable contributions of the Latin American, Latino and Caribbean peoples and cultures. This festival is the kick-off of a month full of activities encompassed within the National Hispanic/Latino Heritage Month at Miami University, and Oxford Ohio. The festival is a portal for intercultural connections and civic engagement.
