KPU faculty can now download a fantastic new resource—the Multicultural Calendar—directly into their Outlook calendars!

- Accurate Dates with explanations for each of the world’s twelve major religions and the cultural festivals of most ethnic groups in North America
- Religions include Bahai, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Islam, Jain, Jewish, Shinto, Sikh, Wicca, Zoroastrian, and various Indigenous Peoples traditions

- Heritage Months for USA, Canada and UK
- United Nations international days and months of recognition.
