Policy Purpose

This policy defines the employee hours of work and work schedules.

Policy Statement

Administrative offices shall be open from Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The normal lunch hour is one hour. 

In an effort to provide flexibility and benefits to employees and departments, the University offers the option of summer work hours. Summer hours, which typically go into place the day after Commencement, run from 8:00am to 4:00pm with a 30 minute break for lunch. All departments and employees are expected to maintain the same level of service as during the academic year. 

Employees who may be on a flexible work schedule and have reduced their lunch to 30 minutes, do not receive any additional time.
