Accommodating Religious Observances
September 2, 2021
This message was sent out to faculty, staff and students by the Provost and the Senior Vice President for Student Success on September 2, 2021.
Dear Students and Colleagues,
Drexel University is dedicated to an environment that respects and allows the free practice of the many faith traditions of our University community. As we prepare for the new academic year, this is a reminder that Drexel is committed to making every reasonable effort to accommodate the religious observances of our students, faculty and professional staff.
The Drexel community is encouraged to request religious accommodations as early as possible, which may include academic, campus housing and employment accommodations. The Office of Equality and Diversity is available to assist in the process of requesting and providing religious accommodations; there are also useful tips on the OED website. The full policy on religious observances and the religious observances calendar can be viewed on the Provost's Office website. For students looking for spiritual and religious community or support, the Office of Spiritual and Religious Life maintains several ministry locations and prayer spaces, and chaplains are available to meet in-person and virtually as needed.
