Staff Scheduling During Academic Breaks

We encourage managers to be flexible with scheduling where departmental workflow and customer service needs may permit a differently structured schedule outside the school year.   

It is expected that college’s operating hours will remain the same during the summer as they are during the school year:  8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Many departments have schedules outside those operating hours (e.g. Housekeeping, Physical Plant, Athletics, Riding Center, Post Office, etc.) that provide support to students, staff, faculty and others on campus.  While enabling employees to have a bit more flexibility with their schedule during the summer months and where your business can allow for such flexibility, it is imperative that each department’s operations are supported during the operating hours and during the hours and workdays critical for your department’s success.
