  • September 15 - October 15: Hispanic Heritage Month
  • October: LGBTQ+ History Month 
  • November: Native American Heritage Month
  • February: Black History Month
  • March: Women's History Month
  • April: Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month

International and Cultural Events

In addition to heritage month programming, The Center celebrates and supports international and cultural events. Programs and activities include Oktoberfest, Diwali, International Education Week, Lunar New Year, Holi Festival, and International Extravaganza.

Spiritual Life Programming

For some community members, religion and spirituality play a significant role in their identity.  For others, it's something they may be curious about. Spiritual life at CSU Pueblo aims to connect interested students to faith based or spiritual communities either on campus or in Pueblo. Check Packlink for a current list of student organizations or contact The Center for International Programs and Inclusive Excellence (The Center) for more information.

First Generation College Student Mentor Program

First generation college students are defined as a student whose parent or guardian has not completed a bachelor's degree. At CSU Pueblo, we value our first generation college students and the strengths they bring by being the first in their family to go to college.

To better serve this population, we connect interested students with a faculty or staff mentor who understands the unique challenges and opportunities of being a first gen college student. We also collaborate with TRIO and Student Support Services to provide resources and support. Annual events include the National First Generation College Celebration on November 8.
