4.17 Religous Observances

Last Revised: 17 Oct 2003
Refer Questions To: Director, Human Resources

Scope

This policy applies to staff and in all offices and divisions of Gallaudet University and to Clerc Center teachers.

Policy

The position of Gallaudet University on religious freedom is consistent with guarantees provided by the Constitution of the United States and Bill of Rights. Although the University accepts and supports certain human values represented by religious thought and practice, the University is neither an advocate for nor an adversary to a particular belief, denomination, or sect and does not officially support or initiate specific religious activities on campus.

The University does not officially observe any specific religious holidays; however, Gallaudet recognizes the importance of allowing employees time off to follow their religious convictions and will attempt to reasonably accommodate requests for leave. Staff employees may request annual leave, their "floating day," or leave without pay to observe the religious holidays of their choosing. Clerc Center teachers may use personal leave or leave without pay. Requests for religious leave must be made and approved in advance.

Employees are not to impose their religious beliefs on others by way of handouts, gifts, overtures, etc.
