Calendar Icon


Description

Muslims will be observing the holy month of Ramadan from around the evening of April 12 until May 12. Depending on their circumstances, they may refrain from eating and drinking between dawn and dusk for all or part of that time. Student employees may request permission to refrain from certain physical activities while fasting or may ask to schedule some tasks earlier in the day. Please be respectful of their religious observance. The Muslim Student Association recommends this article for more information: https://www.immigrant-education.ca/what-is-ramadan-explaining-ramadan-to-non-muslims/

Gustavus Staff who celebrate Ramadan should refer to the religious accommodations section of the Staff Handbook. Staff can then work directly with their supervisor for details.
