University of Illinois System

Celebration Calendar

Throughout the year, University of Illinois System employees recognize and celebrate many holidays and special events. Our hope is to foster a more inclusive culture by acknowledging events that speak to our diverse representation within the system.

We understand that no calendar can be exhaustive when it comes to representing all people and celebrations. Therefore, we want this calendar to be a living document that we can continue to capture and be inclusive of holidays, events, remembrances, and celebrations of our diverse community. We welcome any feedback and/or suggestions. Please email
