Religious accommodation

Religious Accommodation emphasizes the importance of a diverse and inclusive campus community. As part of UAF's commitment to diversity and inclusive excellence, the University will make good faith efforts to provide reasonable religious accommodations to individuals whose sincerely held religious beliefs and practices conflict with a University policy, procedure, or other academic or employment requirement unless such an accommodation would create an undue hardship or fundamentally alter a curriculum or academic program.


To request accommodation:

Employees and visitors:

Accommodations for employees and visitors can be requested through UA Human Resources by email ada-accessibility@ua.askspoke.com or phone: 907-450-8200.

Examples of some common employee religious accommodations include flexible scheduling, voluntary shift substitutions or swaps, adjusted travel dates, and modifications to workplace policies or practices.

Students:

Accommodations for students can be requested through the Department of Equity and Compliance by emailing uaf-DEO@alaska.edu, via phone at 907-474-7300 or in person at 3rd Floor Constitution Hall.

To request a Non-Medical COVID-19 Policy exemption contact Center for Student Rights located at 110 Eielson Building, via phone  907-474-7317 or email UAF-studentrights@alaska.edu.

Examples of student accommodations might include excusing class absences, rescheduling an exam, or giving the student a make-up exam, allowing an individual or group presentation to be delivered on a different date, allowing a student to attend a different discussion section for the same class that week, adjusting a due date or assigning the student appropriate make-up work.


Report discrimination:

Regardless of your affiliation, discrimination at UA based on the protected category of religion is prohibited conduct.
