To‌ ‌show‌ ‌our‌ ‌appreciation‌ ‌for‌ ‌the‌ ‌extraordinary‌ ‌efforts‌ ‌all‌ ‌of‌ ‌you‌ ‌have‌ ‌put‌ ‌forth‌ ‌during‌ ‌these‌ ‌unprecedented‌ ‌times,‌ ‌the‌ ‌University‌ ‌will‌ ‌be‌ ‌providing‌ ‌six‌ ‌additional‌ ‌paid‌ ‌holiday‌ ‌days, as follows: ‌ ‌

  • November 25
  • December 21, 22, 23
  • January 4 & 5

To alleviate concerns about pay outside of the holiday days and to recognize the strong dedication of our community, the University will continue to pay all full-time and part-time regular staff regardless of hours scheduled. This applies to the following two periods:

  • November 30 – December 20
  • January 6 – January 26

Most staff will be required to work the majority of this time in order to support faculty research, students, and others remaining on campus. Moreover, we anticipate that preparation for the second semester will begin no later than January 27, 2021. Please consult with your manager as to the schedule for your specific position.
