The University publishes a holiday schedule each May for the coming fiscal year (July-June) to assist employees in planning their vacations and time off. The VP for Finance, Operations, & Administration is responsible for managing the holiday calendar. The University observes Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, New Year’s Day, Good Friday, and Memorial Day as holidays. The Thanksgiving holiday includes the Friday after Thanksgiving. The Christmas/New Year’s break is approximately a two-week period. The University is also in the practice of granting the Fridays of Fall and Spring breaks as holidays to all employees. The actual dates for observing national holidays and other time off when classes are not in session are contained in the annual holiday schedule as well as in memorandums which are distributed prior to each holiday period.
Holiday pay for permanent part-time employees (between 20 and 29 hour per week) is calculated at four hours per day.
