MU EDI Calendar Academic Year 2023/24

This calendar has been developed to support MU staff and students to recognise and celebrate a variety of occasions throughout the Academic Year. It includes some UN Days in addition to commonly recognised visibility and pride days. This calendar does not provide an exhaustive list and there are many more days and celebrations that could be included in future calendars or lists. Please get in contact with MU EDI Office at if you would like to request a hardcopy or if you have any feedback or suggestions for occasions that should be marked in future.
