The University of Miami’s Workplace Equity and Performance seeks to embrace diversity and strengthen our community across local, national and global settings. In an educational institution, the diversity of experience, diversity of opinion and diversity of culture background not only enrich our quest for knowledge, they are vital to our success.

We recognize the importance of honoring differences year-round by creating an inclusive environment that fosters appreciation and respect for the varied celebrations related to holidays and other events. Our Diversity Calendar list holidays, various celebrations, festivals and holy days drawn from a variety of sources and we hope that it will serve as a catalyst for cooperation and learning.

The Diversity Calendar is subject to change. If you would like to add other holidays and/or observances to the calendar, please email your information to or contact Workplace Equity and Performance at (305) 284-3064 or (305) 243-7203.
