Global Religious Observances Calendar

Religious literacy and cultural awareness are important skills. It’s helpful to know about the traditions and celebrations that are important to students and colleagues so you can provide accommodations and support diversity, equity, and inclusion.

With that in mind, the Ansari Institute maintains this calendar of global religious observances. We want it to be a helpful resource for your university or workplace. Please use it as a resource to build awareness and promote inclusion and representation.
