Campus Closed for Furlough Days

Wednesday, October 14, 2009

The University of West Georgia will be closed on Thursday, Oct. 15, and Friday, Oct. 16, because of state-mandated furlough days. The campus will reopen on Monday, Oct. 19.

All University System of Georgia employees are required to take six days of leave without pay during fiscal year 2010 under the Mandatory Furlough Program. This program applies to all USG employees regardless of source of funds, or place of work, including staff, administrators, faculty and all other employees in classified and unclassified positions, including, but not limited to, time-limited, intermittent, temporary employees, and new hires.

These furlough days equal three days of unpaid leave since September for the employees of UWG.
