The Faculty Senate has set guidelines pertaining to the observation of religious holidays.
The following calendar brings awareness to numerous cultural holidays/practices that many in our community observe.
This calendar is designed for informational purposes and may not include all major religious/cultural holidays and there may be variations based on cultural and regional religious practices. If there are holidays/practices missing from the calendar that you would like reflected, we invite you to contact [email protected].
We encourage community members to be thoughtful about scheduling events such as guest lectures, meetings, symposiums, etc. on major religious holidays.
