End of Semester Break
Dear Campus Community,

Central State University is making great strides to increase the persistence and ongoing success of every student. Your continued focus and commitment to Retention is fueling student success and University recognition achieved as a result. In appreciation of our collective contributions and attention to Compelling Priority #5, Maintain Effective and Efficient Operations, the University will again observe a holiday break from Monday, December 23, 2019 through Wednesday, January 1, 2019. The holiday break incudes five (5) days of authorized leave for all CSU employees.

During the break period, only employees designated as essential need report to work to allow the University to achieve more efficiency. Buildings will have minimal lighting and heat. Supervisors will grant employees required to work during the break period a commensurate amount of break time not to exceed three (5) days at a later date. The University will return to its normal schedule on Thursday, January 2, 2020.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact Ms. Tonya Turner, Human Resources Director, at (937) 376-6018.
