Guidance on Religious Exemptions
April 13, 2020
From: James McCarthy, Interim Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs and Provost
Dear Faculty Colleagues,
I’m writing to ask that you remind your students whose religious observation extends into the week of April 13, that, as always, they have the right to request a religious exemption from academic and work responsibilities. That right, of course, extends to faculty and staff. CUNY’s guidance for religious exemptions can be found here.
