All managers, administrators and non-instructional staff, except those assigned to the Physical Plant, CTC, 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 Interim Director Facilities Management/Planning, Associate VP and Chief Information Technology Officer, Dean of Libraries, Director/Chief of Public Safety and Executive Director of Operations/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.  Holidays do not carry over from one year to the next, and must be used in the year in which they are earned.  There are no exceptions.


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