Summer Hours 2022

The end of a challenging yet successful academic year is fast approaching. Capital University recognizes that employees appreciate the opportunity to work an adjusted schedule in the summer. As an adaptation to Capital’s policy and as administered last year, our office hours will be adjusted for the summer to 9:00 a.m. through 4:00 p.m. daily. All employees will still be paid for their full work day. Summer hours will be in effect as follows: 

Bexley Campus (excluding the Seminary)
Monday, May 9, through Friday, August 12
Trinity Lutheran Seminary and the Law School
Monday, May 23, through Friday, August 12

Scheduling needs may vary by department to continue to meet the needs across the university during the summer. A consistent level of campus safety, service to our students, and functionality of campus facilities must be maintained, so supervisors should coordinate staff scheduling with the appropriate vice president to ensure their constituencies are well served.

In addition, the guidelines established in our Remote Work Arrangement Policy remain in effect. Download the policy here.  

Thank you for your continued hard work and service to Capital University!
