The previous twelve months have been both difficult and unpredictable for faculty and staff who have been instrumental in the University’s response to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. To show our gratitude for these ongoing and significant contributions the University leadership team has elected to provide an additional paid day off in conjunction with the July 1, 2021, Canada Day holiday.
Over the last three months, we have seen the University of Guelph community rally and respond to an unprecedented situation. With a quick pivot in March, and in a matter of a week, we were able to shift to an alternative delivery format for courses and ensure that students could complete their winter term. This period also saw most of our staff and faculty move to working from home, balancing professional and family responsibilities.
A review of normal operating hours was undertaken in consultation with a number of staff and operational units. As a result, the University has made the decision that, commencing August 31, 2019, it will continue with the normal operating hours of 8:30 am to 4:30 pm, and to maintain the scheduling practices that have been in effect over the summer months throughout the entire calendar year.
Effective Friday, June 3rd, 2019, where operationally feasible, the University will be functioning under the guidelines indicated in the Summer Hours Bulletin.
