Ramadan announcement

Ramadan is expected to commence on April 2, 2022 and will last until May 1, 2022. Practicing Muslims will not be taking any food or water from dawn until dusk, or until the sighting of the first star, depending on whether Sunni or Shia. Please be aware that students may be hungry, tired, and dehydrated, particularly if they have classes or meetings in the late afternoon or evening. Please consider giving students options or accommodations for exams that take place in the afternoon or evening. If classes are taking place in the late afternoon or evening, please consider providing a short break for students to leave the room to eat or drink, or let them know that they may eat during class if it is an online class.
