Diversity-related University Policies
Students and instructors should visit the Absences due to Religious Observance page on the Registrar's Office website for information on religious accommodations related to class attendance.
Employees who need reasonable religious accommodation should make the request directly to their supervisor. Employees are expected to provide sufficient notice so supervisors can implement the accommodation.
Supervisors should, whenever possible, accommodate their employees. If a supervisor has denied your request for religious accommodation, or you are uncomfortable making such a request to your supervisor, please contact Human Resources to discuss your needs.
Students should contact Disability Access & Inclusion Student Services (DAISS) to request disability accommodations.
Employees should contact Human Resources to request disability accommodations, per the University’s Policy and Procedure to Request a Reasonable Accommodation for Employees.
