Each semester the Office of Intercultural Development (OID) coordinates keynote speakers, events, and shares resources to build awareness around heritage and history months.

For the fall 2023 semester, efforts are underway to plan events for the following months:

  • Latinx Heritage Month: Sept. 15 to Oct. 15
  • LGBTQIA+ History Month: Oct. 1-31
  • Indigenous Heritage Month: Nov. 1-30 

Have an event you want to promote?

Planning ahead will ensure that your event will be included as part of the month’s coverage through channels such as news.lafayette.edu, the College’s email newsletters, and/or social media accounts.

Prior to each month, there will be a call for events in Lafayette Today. Please be sure to add your events to calendar.lafayette.edu first, and then share the calendar URL with intercultural@lafayette.edu. OID will compile a list of events across campus that celebrate each heritage month and share that list with the campus community through Lafayette Today.

Have an idea for an event but want to talk through details?

Are you planning an event or speaker that ties in with one of these months? Or would your department or club like to host something but are in the early planning stages? Reach out to intercultural@lafayette.edu to discuss your ideas now.
