Campus Climate

Share stories, as well as opinion or "perspectives" pieces, to feature on the Campus Climate website. Please send these to cclimate@umn.edu.

Remember to tag your "campus climate"-related events on the main events calendar. They will automatically feed to the Campus Climate website and may be highlighted in the Campus Climate email that goes out to more than 800 people weekly.

Please share the following blurb or link to the story with your internal audiences.

Religious observances at a public university: How does a public university balance the needs of students, staff, and faculty who profess a wide variety of religions, as well as no religion at all? The U has a policy on religious absences for employees, and faculty are asked to make reasonable efforts to help students navigate and avoid course concerns when religious observances conflict with academic requirements. Read here for more information.
