“ En mis manos: Our Heritage, Our Future”

Chicano/Hispano Student Affairs and UA Hispanic Heritage Month

“En mis manos: Our Heritage, Our Future,” is the theme for CHSA’s Hispanic Heritage Month and the academic year.  Academic success for all students involves creating opportunities for students to connect to the values of the institution, to engage intellectually in and out of the classroom, and to develop a strong community of peer support.    Join us as we engage students in programs and activities that celebrate our history and our heritage, promote academic success and engage students in ‘a present of action.’   “En mis manos” means “in my hands.”
