Accommodation of Religious Observance and Practice
- No employee, agent, or institution under the jurisdiction of the Arizona Board of Regents shall discriminate against any student, employee, or other individual, because of such individual's religious belief or practice or any absence thereof.
- Administrators and faculty members are expected to reasonably accommodate individual religious practices. A refusal to accommodate is justified only when undue hardship would result from each available alternative of reasonable accommodation.
- No administrator or faculty member shall retaliate or otherwise discriminate against any student, employee or prospective employee because that individual has sought a religious accommodation pursuant to this policy.
- It is the responsibility of the president of each university, and the executive director of the Board as to the central staff, to take such actions as are necessary to insure that the intent of this policy is implemented. In implementing this policy, the president of each university shall insure that the policy is included in the university catalog and in such other publications as will assure that all members of the university community are advised of its existence, and the manner in which information regarding its implementation may be obtained.
