Administrative and general office hours are from Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with a lunch period of one hour to be scheduled by each department as requirements demand. The expected office hours are thirty-seven and one-half hours per week. In some areas a 40-hour work-week is prescribed.
Offices which generally serve students, faculty, staff and the public should remain open during the lunch hour and in some cases be open on weekends with reduced work forces. Because of requirements unique to their operations, certain departments must establish work hours designed to meet their specific business needs. Some departments must also operate with a second or third shift.
