ALL ACADEMICS AND STAFF AT UCSD (excluding Medical Center)
During the 2008 holiday season, UC San Diego (excluding the hospitals and clinics) will officially close from December 24 through January 1. The campus anticipates energy savings of approximately $125,000 from the reduced operations during the holiday closure. Many UC San Diego 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 (December 24, 25 and 31, and January 1). Staff employees must charge any working days during the closure period not covered by paid holidays to accrued vacation, accrued compensatory time off (non-exempt employees only), or leave without pay. Academic employees on fiscal year appointments must charge the time off to accrued vacation or leave without pay.
Employees who do not have accrued vacation or accrued compensatory time off to cover the three working days during the closure - December 26, 29 and 30 - may request a one-time advance of up to three days of vacation to cover the period of absence.
UC San Diego departments and units that need to remain open during the closure period must notify their respective vice chancellors to do so.
Staff employees with questions regarding the holiday closure should contact Employee Relations, Human Resources Department, at email@example.com or (858) 534-4115. Academic employees should contact Kelly Maheu, Academic Personnel Office, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (858) 822-3509.
