Summer hours 2008

This summer, in an effort to conserve energy, the University will continue the practice of a modified work schedule with normal business hours for the campus of 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a 30-minute lunch break. These hours will be effective on Monday, June 2, 2008, and continue through Friday, August 22, 2008. As always, authorized supervisors may modify individual work schedules to address special situations as long as these basic hours are covered. It is important that offices are staffed during these announced hours.

As in past summers, this schedule enables the University to realize substantial budget savings by reducing energy consumption during the late afternoon hours when energy demand is highest. We hope that this change will also permit many of you to get the most from the longer summer days.

If you have any questions or concerns that cannot be answered by your supervisor or manager, contact Elizabeth Redmond, Associate Vice President for Human Resources at 278-4488.
