All managers, administrators and non-instructional staff, except those assigned to the Physical Plant, CTC, Health Services, Library, Public Safety and Residence Hall duties observe this schedule. Managers, administrators and department chairpersons are responsible for ensuring that each member of their non-teaching staff adheres to this holiday schedule; failure to do so could create an overtime and compensatory day-off requirement. All non-teaching staff must be granted the appropriate number of holidays, as well as Personal leave days, in accordance with Collective Bargaining Agreements and Personnel Policies.

The Associate VP for Facilities Management/Planning, Associate VP for Information Technology, Health Services Director, Dean of University Libraries, Director of Public Safety and the Associate VP for Student Affairs and Dean of Students may schedule holidays for their non-instructional staff separately and in accordance with their operational requirements.

On those days listed as Holidays – University Remains Open, employees arrange with their supervisors for a day or days off which are mutually agreeable, giving due consideration to operational requirements.

The administration reserves the right to reschedule any holidays in the event the academic calendar is changed.
