Religious Observances Calendar 2021
Embodying a culturally and spiritually diverse community, Drexel University recognizes that on the occasion of important or solemn religious days, certain of its members will observe practices that preclude them from attending to their regular duties whether as faculty members, staff or students. On the occasion of such days, it is important for all who do not share in these same practices to accommodate their colleagues and peers.
The University is committed to making every reasonable effort to accommodate religious observances, which include fasting and work restrictions in many religions. The Office of Equality and Diversity is available to provide information, resources and options about reasonable accommodations at any stage in the process. For more information, please view the University’s Religious Observances policy.
