Ramadan 2020

When: April 23 - May 23

What is Ramadan?

A time of reset and a period of spiritual cleansing within the Muslim community. Ramadan includes a time of fasting, spirituality and worship and community. During this time, students will be balancing their academics, in addition to observing their religious practices. Common concerns for students who observe Ramadan include time for prayer and breaking fast, exam accommodations due to lower energy during fast and awareness of Ramadan.

Life of a Fasting Student:

  • 3:30 a.m.: Pre-dawn meal that precedes the fast
  • 4:30 a.m.: Morning prayer
  • 4:30 a.m. - 8 p.m.: Fasting
  • 8 p.m.: Prayer and breaking fast
  • 10 p.m. - midnight: Prayer

Requesting Accommodations

  • If you are observing Ramadan, contact Stephanie Lucero who can determine reasonable accommodations. Some accommodations may include:
    • Prayer accommodations--Giving students permission to leave class (15 minutes) to pray and/or eat breakfast.
    • Testing accommodations--Determining an alternate time, when a student feels most energized, to take a test.

Questions:

Bias and Coronavirus

Inclusiveness and equity are a priority at Aims community college. Aims is committed to addressing bias and discrimination at all times, including in the current online learning environment. Please report any incidents of bias or discrimination to the Aims Title IX (9) Coordinator & Student Equal Opportunity Officer, Stephanie Lucero, at stephanie.lucero@aims.edu
