UGA reminds Deans, Directors, Department Heads, and Faculty of Religious Practice Sensitivity

The text outlines the institutional practice of accommodating religious observances for faculty, staff, and students at a university. It encourages faculty to consider major religious activities when planning academic requirements and suggests that students discuss potential conflicts at the beginning of the semester.

Absences for religious reasons do not exempt students from coursework, but reasonable alternatives should be provided. Students are obligated to provide notice of religious holiday dates, and both instructors and students should agree on conditions for makeup work. The text acknowledges the diversity of religious observances and recommends consulting online religious/interfaith holiday calendars for reference.
