KEY ADMINISTRATORS/KEY SUPPORT STAFF (excluding UCSD Healthcare)
During the 2004 holiday season, UCSD (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially close from Dec. 23 through Dec. 31. The campus closure recognizes the limited working days this year during the holiday period and the anticipated energy savings from reduced operations. Many UCSD departments will remain open during this time due to their role in supporting essential functions for the campus.
Four of the working days during this period are paid holidays (Dec. 23, 24, 30 and 31), while Dec. 28 and 29 are bonus leave days for policy-covered staff. Application of the bonus leave program to represented employees is subject to collective bargaining and we look forward to the successful completion of these negotiations.
For more information on the bonus leave program, visit
Staff employees must charge any working days during the closure period not covered by paid holidays or bonus leave to accrued vacation, accrued compensatory time off (non-exempt employees only), or voluntary leave without pay. Academic employees on fiscal year (11-month) appointments must charge the time off to accrued vacation or voluntary leave without pay.
UCSD departments and units that need to remain open during the closure period from Dec. 23-31 must notify their respective vice chancellors to do so. UCSD departments and units that wish to close for an expanded holiday period, e.g., Dec. 20-31, must maintain adequate staffing levels to conduct necessary business or provide essential services and will need permission from their respective vice chancellors to close for the additional days (Dec. 20-22).
Staff employees with questions regarding the holiday closure should contact Employee Relations, Human Resources Department, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 534-4115. Academic employees should contact KC Causey, Academic Personnel, at email@example.com or (858) 534-3654.
