Lifelong Learning: National Hispanic University

  1. In honor of Cinco de Mayo . . .

National Hispanic University
The National Hispanic University is an accredited 4-year university located in the heart of Silicon Valley. The mission of The National Hispanic University (NHU) is to enable Hispanics, other minorities, women, and others to acquire an undergraduate degree or certificate using a multicultural educational experience to obtain a professional career in business, education, or technology.

Although Cinco de Mayo is not national holiday in Mexico, many Mexican-Americans and their friends celebrate Latino culture on this day. On the Sunday before Cinco de Mayo, there is a HUGE parade and fiesta in downtown San Jose, and there also is a school holiday in Milpitas on the first Monday in May.
