Multicultural Observances

Spring 2018

Religious, Spiritual, and National Observances

As indicated in our Diversity Statement, Stevenson University believes "its core values are strengthened when all of its members have voice and representation." It is for that reason that we have compiled a comprehensive list of religious, spiritual, and national observances in an effort to promote inclusion and fulfill the commitments outlined in our Diversity Statement.
