Also in 2017, departments will schedule a holiday (1 day) at a time that is appropriate to their department and when classes are not in session or students are not on campus for regular activities (i.e. if the students are here, so are staff).  Some options include:

  • A day in January before students return for the spring semester 
  • An additional day during Spring Break (March 13-16)
  • A day in the summer, after Alumni Weekend and before Orientation
  • A day during Fall Break (October 12 & 13)

Senior leaders should please notify Human Resources of when the departmental holiday will be taken.
