National Hispanic Heritage Month is observed in the United States from Sept. 15–Oct. 15. This year, Andrews University's Hispanic Heritage Month celebration takes place under the theme of “Unidos in the time of COVID-19.” 

The schedule of events kicks off on Monday, Sept. 14, with "Lunes Latino," a bonfire at the Alumni House. On Tuesday, Sept. 15, "Unidos Through COVID-19 (international edition)" will take place at 11:30 a.m. in Buller 250 and on Zoom. 

A second program, "The Brown Church: An Interview with Daniel Duffis," marks the start of the Truth, Racial Healing & Transformation (TRHT) Campus Center co-curricular series. It will also take place at 11:30 a.m. and is available for viewing on the Andrews University Facebook page and YouTube channel. Duffis, born on the Colombian island of San Andrés, currently works for the Department of World Mission at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological Seminary, where he completed his MDiv (2016) and is also pursuing his PhD in mission and intercultural theology.
