“One of the most important things that Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates is language. Spanish is now part of everyday life in the United States. More than 13 percent of the population speaks Spanish—at least at home—and this number is expected to grow in the next  few years. Language is the lifeline of a culture, so it is essential to share and celebrate the influence that people from Spain, Mexico, Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean have in our society.Governors State University does a great job of celebrating the vital presence of our Hispanic and Latin American community. As a Dominican writer and Assistant Professor, I feel empowered and motivated to teach my classes from a Caribbean perspective, and I am thankful to Governors State for that.”
