ESTABLISHMENT OF HOLIDAYS FOR FY 2002 - 2003
State law allows the governing body of an institution of higher education to establish the holiday schedule for the institution. The holidays may be set on any days the Board chooses, but the number of holidays may not exceed the total number of days to which employees of other State agencies are entitled. It has been determined that the other agencies will observe fifteen (15) holidays during FY 02/03.
It is recommended that the following fifteen (15) days be established:
|Holiday||Dates||Number of Days|
|Thanksgiving||November 28, 29, 2002||2 days|
|Christmas||December 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 30, 31, 2002||7 days|
|New Year’s Day||January 1, 2003||1 day|
|Martin Luther King, Jr. Day||January 20, 2003||1 day|
|Spring Break||March 17, 18, 19, 2003||3 days|
|Independence Day||July 4, 2003||1 day|
In addition, it is recommended that the University close March 20 and 21, 2003 which will allow utility savings by being closed a full week at Spring Break. Staff members would be required to use vacation or compensatory leave for these closure days.
Further, employees who wish to do so may observe one or more of the following optional State holidays or other traditionally recognized religious or cultural holidays by substituting vacation or compensatory leave for one or more of the fifteen University holidays shown above or with supervisory approval by working on one or more of the University holidays shown above.
