Two important resources are the Faculty Search Toolbox and the Religious Holidays Calendar.
The Faculty Search Toolbox contains resources, templates, and breakthrough practices for recruiting diverse faculty to NCSU.
The Religious holidays guidelines and calendar provide a short list of some holidays on which some campus members may not be able to work or attend class.
This section of the Faculty Diversity website contains information about online and university resources on a wide range of areas of faculty work: on recruiting diverse faculty, faculty search processes, on mentoring faculty, resources and information about teaching diverse populations and increasing the diversity of students in the pipeline to STEM careers, graduate school, and the professoriate, resources and programs for faculty with families, for faculty approaching retirement, and links to reports and NC State demographic and survey data.

Religious Holidays: Guidelines and Google overlay calendar
Several religions prohibit working on certain holidays. To aid faculty and supervisors with scheduling events and activities, a short list of some holidays on which students, staff, or faculty may not be able to work or attend class is provided on the Major Religious Holidays website. Please note that this list is not at all exhaustive. More complete lists are linked to the cultural calendar website.
NC State’s policies on classroom attendance and holidays are also available there. Part of the regulation is reproduced here:
3.1.3 Students will be allowed a minimum of two excused absences per academic year for religious observances as verified by the Division of Undergraduate Academic Programs (Park Shops, 515-3037).
We have created an overlay for Google Calendar of major religious and cultural holidays. The holidays with work restrictions appear in lavender and are noted with two askerisks on the Google calendar overlay. The calendar is intended to be used as a guide for instructors and event planners to indicate which days are important religious holidays that might entail work restrictions.
You can overlay this calendar on your Google Calendar by clicking “add a coworker’s calendar” and then typing email@example.com as the email address. The Google Calendar overlay contains all the holidays (with and without work restrictions) listed on the Major Religious Holidays website.
