Religious Diversity Guidelines

The University of Iowa is a community whose members hold a variety of religious and philosophical views. As a public institution, we respect the separation of church and state as a constitutional principle and practice, and we hold as one of our core values a commitment to, “vigilantly protect free expression of thought.” Institutionally sponsored religious symbols are not appropriate in a public institution. We urge departments to be respectful of our diversity of beliefs and refrain from displaying within public areas in the workplace any religious symbols that may be seen as implying institutional support for a particular religious viewpoint. Departments should also exercise good judgment and sensitivity concerning the appropriateness of seasonal, non-religious symbols in the workplace.

If you have any questions about the guidelines or have questions about a particular situation, you may contact University of Iowa Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity at 335-0705 or by email at diversity@uiowa.edu.

Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend all University of Iowa sponsored events. If you require an accommodation to participate or have questions about Festival of World Cultures, please call Concierge Services at 319-356-1900.
