University Holidays

The University’s Holiday Schedule is noted below.  Coverage for some areas of the University may be required on holidays. Department Directors will determine and make arrangements to schedule essential personnel to work on holidays. 

To assist with security, cleaning and heating of buildings, all Department Directors are requested to notify Public Safety and University Facilities if your department will be staffed during the extended winter break.    

Employees in the "part-time with partial benefits" employment category who are regularly scheduled to work on Employee Appreciation Holidays are eligible for those paid holidays.
