HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will implement a four-day work week for the summer beginning next week through August 8.
During the period, the university will operate on a 10-hour workday, Monday through Thursday, from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Employees will have a 30-minute lunch break each day.
“The change should allow adequate hours for students and others conducting business with the university, while allowing us to see some savings in energy costs, since most buildings will be shut down on Fridays,” said Southeastern President John L. Crain.
The university expects to save nearly $200,000 by moving to the four-day work week.
The university will be closed Monday, May 25, in observance of Memorial Day, a state and federal holiday. Final registration and Freshman Orientation for the summer session is scheduled June 1-2 with classes beginning June 3.
