"The culture of science is a culture of engagement with a broad, diverse, worldwide community. This Hispanic Heritage Month, I join my colleagues in celebrating our individual pasts and collectively embracing the future of science and its beneficial impact on our nation and our world."

Celebrating #hispanicheritagemonth at the National Science Board

“I was born in Ft. Worth, Texas on the 4th of July and baptized into the Catholic Church in the days when Americans first walked on the moon. My Hispanic Heritage and American Heritage are the same thing. They don’t compete against each other but are two halves of a whole: me. I feel the same way about our whole country. Our Hispanic heritage is our country’s and ALL of our heritage — it’s a beautiful and inseparable part of who we are. As a scientist and now the Provost at The Catholic University of America in our Nation’s capital, I feel very fortunate and blessed to have been given opportunities by those who came before me and our country both of which we recognize this month, and I have a special obligation to pay it forward. Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the creative and unitive nature of our culture, ancestors and our country, the United States of America.”

Celebrating #HispanicHeritageMonth with Ellen Ochoa, Chair of the NSB.

As we recognize the contributions of those of Hispanic/LatinX heritage to the U.S., it is important that we also encourage greater participation in science, technology, engineering and math fields. There is not just one type of person who can be a scientist or engineer; all of society will benefit when the creativity and curiosity of people with diverse backgrounds and experiences are applied toward making new discoveries and developing innovative solutions to challenges.
