Happy holidays and have a great winter break

JUST A REMINDER: For the second year in a row, Pitt employees will get three extra paid days off during winter break in recognition of all their hard work during the past year, according to an emailed announcement from David DeJong, senior vice chancellor for business & operations.

The break, which was originally scheduled to begin on Dec. 23, will now start on Monday, Dec. 20, which effectively makes Friday, Dec. 17, the last workday of the year for most Pitt employees. University offices will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 4.
