Ursinus College honors the wide diversity of religious and spiritual practices that make up our campus and its surrounding community. While American calendars are largely derived from Christian-rooted cultures and holidays, we recognize the inequitable impact this has on members of our community who observe other religious and spiritual practices. To that end, we offer this calendar as an imperfect attempt to highlight the diversity of observances present within the Ursinus College community and equip students, faculty, and staff with the information necessary to create a campus environment that strives to fully include and welcome people of all backgrounds.
If you have questions about these holidays, or see things missing that you feel might be important to add, please contact College Chaplain and Director of Religious and Spiritual Life Rev. Terri Ofori at firstname.lastname@example.org Ext. 3273
