Letter from Dr. Kenny Regarding Summer Work Schedule

Stony Brook University Logo

To: All Faculty and Staff
From: President Shirley Strum Kenny
Subject: Summer Work Schedule
Date: April 21th, 2009

As we approach the end of the academic year, I want to thank the entire University community for working so hard in so many ways for the good of the campus.

In past years, many departments and work units have offered a more flexible schedule during the summer months. This practice will continue this year, between May 25 and August 26, 2009. Employee participation in these arrangements is strictly voluntary.

Service to our constituents may not be compromised. Units that operate 24 hours a day, including the Hospital, Long Island State Veterans Home, and other health care facilities, will continue to do so, and all normal University services are to remain available during the core hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. Within these constraints, I encourage supervisors to accommodate the requests of their staff.

To ensure that revised schedules comply with union contracts and the guidelines of the state and federal governments, please contact Labor Relations at (631) 632-6140. Further information about summer work schedules, and issues of time and attendance, will be circulated by Human Resource Services.
