Modified Summer Schedule for 2017

Lander University will operate on a Modified Work Summer Schedule for the summer of 2017.

Between Monday, May 8, 2017 and Friday, August 04, 2017 the University will implement a four-day work schedule. 

Lander’s core business hours for the 4-day work week will be Monday through Wednesday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. with a 30 minute lunch and Thursday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. with a 30 minute lunch.  Variation of these hours will be handled at the supervisory level ensuring a 37.5 hour week. Annual leave may be used for a portion of the new work schedule with supervisor approval. 

This schedule will result in lower utility costs during the summer months.  The override system for zoned/office conditioning will be inactivated to insure these cost savings.
