Colorado State University will observe Monday, Dec. 31, 2018, as a holiday, and University offices will be closed. The additional day off is authorized as a day of administrative leave for State employees, which includes CSU employees.
Departments not able to fully close on Dec. 31 should reschedule this day of administrative leave for essential employees in accordance with the provisions of Holiday Leave as outlined in Section 3-3 on page 19 of the Human Resources Manual, available on the Human Resources website.
The extra day off is the result of Gov. John Hickenlooper declaring Friday, Nov. 23, 2018, an additional holiday for State employees. The University’s current holiday schedule designated Nov. 23 as a day of closure. Therefore, CSU is taking the additional day on New Year’s Eve.
