Cultural and Heritage Month Programming

ODIL will celebrate the recognized awareness months and week(s) for the NPU community below. Cultural and heritage months will educate and raise understanding regarding the heritage and history of cultures, groups, or causes. These are not trivialized recognitions but intentional intercultural celebrations which reflect North Park’s diverse student body.

ODIL and Diversity Office Clubs will provide programming, commentary, and resources to promote these selected intercultural observances and commemorative months/weeks. We hope you join us!
