Holiday & Intersession Announcement

To All Boston University Faculty & Staff:

I am pleased to announce our Holiday and Intersession schedule for the period September 2020 through August 2021.

Boston University will observe an Intersession Holiday between Christmas and New Year’s Day, which will permit most employees the opportunity to spend more time with their families and friends during the holiday season.

Regular employees not covered by collective bargaining agreements will receive time off at their regular rate of pay during Intersession.  Employees who are required to work and to perform essential services will receive compensatory time off at a later time.  Represented employees’ time off and pay for holidays/intersession are governed by their collective bargaining agreements.

A complete list of the University holidays and intersession dates through Independence Day 2021 can be found on the Boston University website:

The total number of holidays and intersession days is 16 ½, significantly more than most Boston-area employers provide.

If you have any questions regarding this schedule, please contact the Human Resources Service Center at 617-353-2380.

Yours sincerely,

Ken Freeman
Ad Interim, Vice President, Human Resources
