All are expected to make every effort to be supportive of those who make requests for religious accommodation in order to respect the rights of faculty, staff, and students to observe religious traditions and to support the diversity of faith expression in the campus community. 

Those who request reasonable accommodations are expected to give advance notice of their request (e.g. within the first two weeks of class, as soon as meeting conflicts are identified, etc.) to the appropriate person (professor, chair, direct supervisor, etc.).

Everyone at the university is expected to be sensitive to and consider the religious needs of faculty, staff, and students when scheduling meetings and events, so as not to exclude the participation of others who may otherwise expect to or need to be present.

Given the complexity of robust campus schedules, classroom requirements, and workplace needs, there may be reasonable limits to the extent that religious accommodations can be extended.   Two-way communication is important, in any case, to consider circumstances and determine possibilities or limits, when necessary.  

Religious Accommodations

FileUD employees can participate free of charge in live or archived webinars on a variety of topics, including teaching and learning, thanks to our membership in the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE)
