Hispanic Heritage Month
Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated from September 15 - October 15, so this year, the University of South Carolina wants to highlight programs that directly address the needs of the Latinx community on campus and in our state. Our campaign will run through November 1, Día de los Muertos and all funds raised will go to the programs selected.

The Center on Migration at the College of Social Work aims to advance our understanding of immigration and the policies that shape it. In addition to promoting interdisciplinary research at UofSC, the Center works to translate findings into actionable recommendations for policymakers, nonprofits, and local communities.
