Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month

We celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 to October 15) to recognize the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose families and ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America.

The day of September 15 is significant as it is the anniversary of independence for Latin American countries Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

Alex Torres and His Latin Orchestra will be performing on campus on Thursday, September 21. The award-winning 12-piece orchestra is well-known for its original blend of Afro-Caribbean rhythms.

Creating a Welcoming and Supportive Community

SUNY Cobleskill is committed to creating a community of practice that fosters the exchange of ideas in a respectful and non-threatening way, and creates better understanding, awareness, and opportunities to learn from each other.

We reject bigotry, hateful speech, oppression, harassment, bullying, and all forms of injustice.

We believe in the inherent dignity of each person. We value fairness, civility, and kindness. We listen to, encourage, and support each other. We seek to instill in our faculty, staff and students a lifelong appreciation for the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion so that we can create a better world.
