Religious holidays

The University of Maine Calendar details events and activities for our community, primarily on our Orono and Machias campuses.

At the start of each academic year, the Office of Human Resources shares a holiday schedule reminder, as well as one of the many web-based listings of religious holidays worldwide. We encourage you to learn about the potential for interfaith dialogue as a global community.

As with all forms of diversity, our inclusive, caring community embraces religious diversity as an opportunity for observance, reflection and celebration. It’s also an opportunity for greater awareness, mindfulness and understanding.

We appreciate the varied religious and cultural backgrounds of our faculty, staff and students who contribute, enrich and strengthen our community.
