Colleagues, we have discovered an error in the printed University calendar that was distributed to faculty, staff, and parents. The Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Wednesday, September 28 (not Tuesday, September 27, as shown on the calendar). It concludes at sundown on Friday, September 30. We regret the error.

The University Senate Rules and Regulations provide the following guidance regarding religious observances:

1.4.3 Examinations and tests other than final examinations should not be scheduled in conflict with mandated religious observances. In order to ascertain in a given class if a scheduled examination conflicts with a mandated religious observance, at the beginning of the semester the instructor shall ask students who may be affected to identify themselves privately so that a make-up examination may be scheduled at a mutually acceptable time.
