September 2023: Celebrating Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month and Jewish High Holidays

An Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month banner

Our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) Celebrations Calendar identifies some of the principal observances that are particularly significant to our different Gettysburg College communities. While not exhaustive of all commemorations, with this calendar we highlight and educate on the diverse cultural legacies that enrich all of us.

A Rosh hashanah banner
The month of September, specifically September 15th, introduces two critical celebrations: the beginning of Hispanic/Latinx Heritage Month, which concludes October 15, as well as a Rosh Hashanah, also on September 15, a two-day holiday that marks the Jewish New Year.

Land Acknowledgement

Gettysburg College is located in a storied place; a site of historical trauma and building of national identity with deep ties to racial justice and injustice. Yet, a major aspect of our story has been absented: that this place is Indigenous land. The Gettysburg College Land Acknowledgement initiative has sought to address the erasure of Indigenous presence while understanding this work to be ongoing. The land acknowledgement statement itself is an important first step in building relationships with the Indigenous communities who call this place home.
