In 2019, the University created the Summer Flex program which is designed to promote employee work-life balance and reward employees for contributions to our university. Given the success of the program and requests for its renewal, the University is pleased to offer the 2021 Summer Flex program. This program will allow eligible staff to work a flexible schedule with either a 4-day work week, 4.5-day work week, or some other flexible work schedule. This year's program will last 13 weeks, beginning Sunday, May 2 and ending Saturday, July 31.

It is important to read the Summer Flex program guidelines, examples and FAQs to determine whether an individual or department will participate and requirements of those participating. Departments are not required to participate in the Summer Flex program if the employees' duties and responsibilities are better served by working the standard schedule during all or part of this time period. All offices MUST be open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Any office with two or more employees may not utilize flex options that result in having no employees present during the work week.


All employees participating are required to complete the Summer Flex Schedule Request Form and submit the approved form to Human Resources by April 23, 2021.
