Heritage Months

Heritage months are periods within the year that are designated to celebrate and acknowledge cultural and marginalized groups. These are times not only to celebrate, but also to educate others on various groups’ histories and contributions to our shared history.


UW-Madison honors it’s diversity by cultivating intentional experiences and spaces for students to learn and celebrate within and across identity, culture, and heritage to promote a more culturally aware campus community.
