Human Resources


The university pays for employees to be off work on days designated by the Governor as holidays.  Employees are eligible for paid holidays on the 1st day of employment.

The Governor may also designate one discretionary holiday per calendar year. The discretionary holiday must be taken during the dates indicated. University support staff and 12-month unclassified employees may use the Governor’s discretionary day after 6 months of employment.
