Dear Colleagues:

With the holidays fast approaching, we wanted to provide some guidance for this year’s holiday schedule, as well as provide the holiday schedule for calendar year 2017. Below are the highlights:

Friday after Thanksgiving

The Friday after Thanksgiving is a holiday for the Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School campuses. Employees of the Miller School of Medicine/UHealth will receive a separate communication regarding this day.

Year-End Holidays

The last working day before the year-end holiday season begins is Thursday, December 22, for the Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School campuses, and Friday, December 23, for the Miller School and UHealth (including Lennar). Please refer to the holiday schedule for more information.

Departments located on the Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School campuses are encouraged to close operations, where possible, on Wednesday, December 28, and Thursday, December 29; employees are required to utilize accrued vacation and/or floating holiday time to remain in pay status.

Year-End Holiday Celebrations

Managers should use discretion in planning departmental and divisional celebrations, and be conservative in the use of University resources.

Thank you for all you do to make the University a special place. I wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season.

Best regards,

Joe Natoli
Vice President for Business and Finance
and Chief Financial Officer
