HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University will implement a four and a half day work week for the fall beginning Monday, August 8.
During the period, Southeastern will operate Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Employees will have a 45-minute lunch break each day. Friday hours of operation are 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
“The new schedule provides adequate 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.
Not affected by the schedule change are the university’s Southeast Louisiana Business Center at 1514 Martens Drive in Hammond and the Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts in downtown Hammond.
The university will be closed Monday, Sept. 5, in observance of Labor Day, and on Thursday, Oct. 6 and Friday, Oct. 7 for fall break. Classes for the fall session begin Aug. 17.
