The Graduate Program in Public Health reserves the right to change the academic calendar. All students and faculty will be notified, via e-mail, of such changes prior to their effective dates. ISMMS, drawing on and respecting all traditions, is a secular institution. Our student body is comprised of individuals from diverse backgrounds and religious beliefs. We are sensitive to commitments to all religious observances, but do not build our yearly calendar around them.
