Calendar Motion on Religious Holidays

Approved 8 March 2017


  • Whereas our college and campus is composed of members from a wide and diverse variety of faiths, faiths whose holidays are often not listed on traditional calendars produced in the United States, and
  • Whereas our college should strive to accommodate the religious practices of all our faculty, recognizing that exigent circumstances may occasionally not make that possible,

Be it resolved that the College of Liberal Arts’ Faculty Council should attempt to avoid scheduling its meetings on major religious holidays and, in order to avoid such conflicts, the Faculty Council’s Executive Committee should consult the relevant calendars before the starts of fall and spring semesters to ensure that its meetings are not so scheduled.

Be it further resolved that the CLA Faculty Council recommend the same practice to the Academic Senate Calendar Committee and further request that this committee establish a procedure for how major holidays may be added to the calendar.
