As we delve deeper into the vibrant tapestry of cultural diversity that enriches our campus, we are thrilled to recognize and celebrate National Arab American Heritage Month throughout April.  This annual observance provides us with a significant opportunity to honor the contribution, achievements, and rich cultural heritage of Arab Americans to our society and our university community. 

Arab Americans have left an indelible mark in various fields, their achievements shining brightly in academia, arts, literature, science, technology, business, politics, and beyond.  Their enduring legacy is not just a part of our nation’s history; it is the fabric that weaves us together, and we take this time to acknowledge and appreciate their profound impact.

We invite all the members of the Governors State University community to join us in commemorating National Arab American Heritage Month.  Let us come together to celebrate diversity, promote inclusivity, and honor the invaluable contributions of Arab Americans to our shared heritage through the following events on Thursday, April 25, 2024.
