Religion & Spirituality
We seek to support and celebrate the religious and spiritual diversity of our campus community.
During this time of social distancing, if you are seeking spiritual or faith-related support and/or activities, please connect with local, regional or national churches/centers/synagogues/temples for online/virtual services.
Ramadan is a month of fasting, prayer, reflection and community. Muslim students will be fasting from dawn until dusk, which means no food and no water. It is not unusual for students to be up past midnight for prayers and then get up at 3 a.m. to eat before dawn. Ramadan is scheduled on the lunar calendar, so it moves each year. When Ramadan falls during the semester, Muslim students may be hungry, tired and dehydrated, especially if they are in class late in the afternoon. Students are encouraged to work with their instructors to discuss any course needs that might be impacted during Ramadan.
An adapted calendar of holidays and religious observances during the academic year is available for download. The calendar lists many, though not all, religious or similar observance of faiths most likely to be represented at UND.
Instructors can incorporate dates into course syllabi, and it also may serve as a starting point for collaborative conversations about religious observations and course schedules.
In support of the spiritual lives of American Indian/Alaska natives, UND policies allow the spiritual use of sage, sweetgrass and cedar smoke, when used for the purpose of purification and prayer. It is consistent with time-honored cultural, traditional and spiritual observances. More information is provided in the UND Code of Student Life.
