Below is a list of major Christian, Hindu, Islamic, and Jewish holidays and religious observances, and U.S. public (Federal) holidays for the next two academic years. This list is not exhaustive and observances are not necessarily days when individuals will not attend work or school.
The Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action encourages students, staff, and faculty to consult the calendar before scheduling events or exams. For more information on religious accommodations resources, please visit the EOAA website.
NOTES: Islamic holidays are based on the lunar calendar and will be celebrated approximately around the dates listed. Dates listed with the word "evening" generally begin and end at sundown on the respective days. Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, is observed weekly from around sundown on Friday to around sundown on Saturday and is a time where one is to refrain from work and other activities.
