Action:

  • Identify the holidays for a wide range of religions to your course calendar before planning your course schedule. Avoid scheduling exams on religious holidays. For example, many Jewish people fast and do not work on Yom Kippur.

Reason:

  • The school calendar typically enables Christian students to celebrate religious holidays without missing class, but for other religions this is not the case.
  • Scheduling around religious holidays can make your course accessible to more students.
