The state of Washington recently passed a law that requires professors to accommodate students observing religious holidays, primarily for Muslims who are fasting during the MONTH of Ramadan.
The College Fix Under the new law, public colleges and universities in the Evergreen state must accommodate students who, “due to the observance of religious holidays, expect to be absent or endure a significant hardship during certain days of the course or program.” Reasonable accommodations spelled out in the legislation include rescheduling exams or activities.
Students seeking such accommodations must provide written notice to professors within the first two weeks of class, the law adds. Professors must also mention the availability of such accommodations on their syllabi.
(Muslims don’t actually fast (as in not eating eat at all for 24 hours), they just don’t eat from sunrise to sunset, then gorge themselves for the rest of the night. So essentially, they miss lunch.
While the law appears to have been designed with Muslim students in mind, any religion can be cited. “I can fast for Lent and the professors have to accommodate,” otherwise the professor’s career and reputation could be at stake, Claire Denise said. “It’s the law now, so if they don’t accommodate, a student can sue.”
