Accommodating Religious Observances
September 15, 2022
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 academic year and fall term — a term filled with numerous religious holidays and days of observation — 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 for Institutional Equity and Inclusive Culture (EIC) is available to assist in the process of requesting and providing religious accommodations; there are also useful tips on the EIC 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.
