Holiday Schedule Update

Dear Faculty and Staff,

The purpose of this correspondence is to share an update to the remaining 2022 Holiday Schedule and the upcoming 2023 Holiday Schedule.

We will extend our end of year break with an additional day! In appreciation of your support of the University's strategic initiatives, December 30, 2022, will be designated as a recognition day. With this change, the University will now observe, New Year's Day on Monday, January 2, 2023.

Thursday, December 22, 2022, is the last workday for the year, and University operations will resume on Tuesday, January 3, 2023.

*Due to university operations some employees may have to work on these days. Those employees will be able to use the recognition leave at a different time. Employees should coordinate usage with their supervisors.

The Holiday Schedule is consistent with the Academic Calendar. Some employees may have to work on these days; the appropriate recognition, holiday pay and compensatory leave policies apply. Classified employees working flexible or alternate work schedules should consult the Commonwealth's Department of Human Resources Management Policy 4.25 - Holidays or call ODU's Department of Human Resources Recruitment and Employment Manager, Pam Harris at ext. 3042 for guidance.

Please contact Pam Harris should you have any questions about the Holiday Calendar or Recognition Leave.
