Holiday Time Off and Winter Break Operations

All UM System Universities take a consistent approach to time off for Thanksgiving and Winter break.  This means that there will be no campus-wide early release and any time off on the day before the Thanksgiving holiday and on Christmas eve will need to be recorded as vacation or personal days.  Department managers are responsible for scheduling staff at a level appropriate for their customer demand.  

Winter break days are now governed by CRR 340.045 Winter Break Reduced Operations which specifies that Winter Break occurs “during the period starting the day after Christmas Day holiday is observed and running through the end of the day before New Year’s Day holiday is observed.”  The campus operating plan for Winter Break will be published in the next HR Update

Please call or email your HR Consultant or the HR Department if you have questions, and have a pleasant holiday season!
