Special Day of Leave
The university has decided to continue to honor the special day of leave granted by the Governor. Accordingly, if the Governor continues the tradition of granting a special day of leave, OAs with ongoing appointments may use that day on any working day from the day before Thanksgiving through January 31st. This announcement is usually made by mid-November each year.
Holiday time is prorated for part time OAs.
