Diversity Calendar and Events

SUNY Upstate is a community of diverse cultures. We realize that people celebrate a variety of holidays during various times of the year, and some people choose to celebrate none. Some celebrations are tradition based, cultural, spiritual or religious. In recognition, and celebration of our diversity and to promote a civil, respectful and safe holiday season, we are encouraging all employees to take this opportunity to learn about different cultures and traditions.

Religious Symbols and Décor in Employee Offices and Cubicles
Displays of religious décor and symbols inside employees' offices and cubicles are generally permissible. In fact, prohibiting the display of religious decorations and symbols may be deemed an infringement on an employee's constitutional rights of free exercise of religion and free speech. All holiday displays must comply with applicable fire and safety codes.
