An increase in the diversity of students' religious affiliations has necessitated that students affairs professionals address the role of religion in students' lives. This paper is an examination of the current policies at the University of Maryland concerning the observance of religious holidays, accompanied by a critique of those policies. Recommendations are provided for ways that faculty and staff can be more sensitive to the needs of students from minority religious groups and for policies concerning religious holidays that are more inclusive of all religious diversity.
