HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will implement a four-day work week
for the summer beginning Monday, May 14. The university will resume its four and a
half day work week on August 6.
During the period, Southeastern will operate on a 10-hour workday, with campus offices open Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
“The schedule provides hours for students and others conducting business with the university, while allowing us to capture savings in energy costs,” said Southeastern President John L. Crain.
The university anticipates saving approximately $200,000 by moving to the four-day work week.
Not affected by the schedule change is the university’s Southeast Louisiana Business Center at 1514 Martens Drive in Hammond.
The university will be closed Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day, and Wednesday, July 4, and Thursday, July 5, for Independence Day. Classes for the summer session begin May 30.
