Multicultural Calendar

The Office of Human Resources – Organizational Development and Staff Diversity (ODSD) has developed a Multicultural Calendar listing of selected religious observances, cultural celebrations and University holidays. Acknowledging and respecting these events promotes greater knowledge of multiculturalism and diversity and is a foundation to inclusion.

Some of the religious holidays begin at sundown and end the next day (or subsequent days). Some staff, faculty and students have religious observances that require them to fast during the day or abstain from work.

Please take these special observances into consideration when scheduling meetings and events, particularly those days that have fasting or other observances highlighted.

For additional information on these and other religious holidays and cultural celebrations, please visit the Multicultural Calendar.

You can download these selected religious observances, cultural celebrations and University holidays directly to your calendar.  Here are specific directions for the various platforms:
