Early Dismissal for the Upcoming Holiday Break

December 20, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

As we prepare to celebrate the holiday season, we would like to recognize your many contributions that help our University to flourish.

We have many reasons to be proud. For example, Drexel was recently named to the Forbes 2022 Best-In-State Employers list, an achievement that reflects your dedication to the University and strong commitment to civic engagement, equity, inclusion and belonging.

In appreciation of your continued commitment, we are happy to announce the University will be closing at noon on Dec. 23. If you are a professional staff member who supports an area that requires you to work during this period, please communicate with your supervisor about managing your schedule. Professional staff affiliated with a collective bargaining unit should refer to their bargaining agreement for applicability. For information on how to record time off, please visit the Human Resources site.

We hope that you take time during the holiday break, not only to celebrate with family, friends and loved ones, but also to rejuvenate and reenergize.

In the meantime, we offer our best wishes to you and your families for a relaxing, joyful and safe holiday season.
