Addition of Wellness Days to Paid Time Away Benefit

By Kimberly Lieb, November 18, 2022

It is with immense appreciation and gratitude for the outstanding commitment, dedication, and perseverance our staff have demonstrated since the pandemic commenced that we share with you the following permanent additions to the holiday and wellness time off schedule.  

Beginning this year, the college is permanently adding a wellness day off to coincide with the Thanksgiving break. The Wednesday prior to the Thanksgiving holiday will now be a wellness day off, extending the time off to three days. This year, the break will run from Wednesday, November 23, 2022, through Friday, November 25, 2022. 

In our continued commitment to become an employer of choice and in recognition of the efforts of our staff throughout the year, we are also permanently adding Summer Restorative Fridays to the college’s paid time away benefit. These wellness days will be observed between the Friday following Commencement and early August. A notification will be sent each year identifying when Summer Restorative Fridays will begin and end.
