Identity and Heritage Celebrations

During the academic year we hold dedicated space to celebrate and honor various identity and heritage groups represented throughout the University of Houston-Clear Lake community. While we understand the importance of the daily intersectional approach of our work, we believe these times provide us the opportunity to learn more about and honor the history, innovations, culture, diversity, challenges and triumphs of various identity groups.
