Welcome to February!

This is a very important month on campus, as it commemorates Black History Month: an annual observance in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom for remembrance of important people and events in the history of the African diaspora.

Reflecting upon and celebrating African-American culture has also been a commitment for the Valencia Campus since our early days: Most of what we teach and learn in our campus has a unique and common origin, which is the fusion of European culture and African tradition, a merge that happened mainly in North, Center and South America. This fusion has brought us to be what we are today: it has become the reason for our existence.

A number of programs will be held on campus to commemorate the influence of Afro-American culture in our history during February (watch out for more info on those as dates approach!) but most importantly, we would like to encourage students to initiate and share their own offerings.

So go ahead and access our Event Planning Document to share your offerings to the community. The entire Student Affairs / Diversity and Inclusion team is here to support your initiatives and we look forward to seeing them ignite the life of our campus this month!
