ASU graduate alumni honor Hispanic heritage through design
To commemorate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month, three ASU alumni designers collaborated with Los Diablos, the official Latino chapter of ASU Alumni, and ASU communicators to design graphics that reflect the Hispanic and Latinx experience at ASU.
Virtual, interdisciplinary events celebrate Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month
The final week of Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month is upon us, and 2020 brought an adjustment to the celebratory events including virtual art exhibits, lectures and performances. This month is observed by celebrating the histories, cultures, and contributions of Chicanx, Latinx, Hispanic individuals as well as groups who identify with and strive to create a more inclusive environment for these communities.
Building a more resilient graduate community through diversity
Over the past several months, the Graduate College has conducted a series of listening sessions with a large and diverse sample of graduate students and faculty communities. These sessions allowed us to observe how diversity aids this generation’s resiliency. As deans, we find ourselves in awe of the resiliency ASU graduate students have demonstrated since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March.
