I hope your semester is off to a great start. Here is the first of this year’s Weekly Three:

Scheduling and Calendar Events:

  • As you plan speakers, events and activities for the coming year, please remember to check the list of religious holidays and the Miami University Events Calendar before finalizing dates. Doing so will identify important religious holidays or conflicting events on campus, and will help insure more inclusive participation. Please be aware that there are religious holidays that may affect class attendance for students. Faculty should be sure to follow Miami’s attendance policy which provides important information about required accommodations for students who miss class for religious observances.
