- Description: Consistent with Board of Trustee's Regulations, Western Illinois University believes holiday year-end closure is an important way to recognize the many contributions of our colleagues during the year. This year, Western Illinois University will provide eligible employees time off with pay for 11 holidays, including two days for Christmas and two days for New Year's, as described in the Board of Trustee's Regulations. This year, WIU will extend to non-negotiated employees additional days off with pay in conjunction with Christmas and New Year's. Designated administrative closure days, December 27, 28, and 29 will be granted with pay to non-negotiated employees. Employees in positions covered by collective bargaining agreements will observe the holiday period as agreed in their respective contracts.

The University will be closed to the public December 24 through January 1. To remind everyone, policies that have been in effect in the past remain in effect. Only those employees providing essential services (e.g., Heating Plant, Public Safety) will be required to work as assigned during this period. If an employee must work on December 26, 27, or 28, overtime will not be incurred and alternative arrangements for equivalent time off should be made with the supervisor.
