Benefits-eligible employees given two additional days of paid leave for campus shutdown

Hello, Shocker family!

The leaves are turning, the weather is getting colder and before we know it, the winter holiday season will be upon us.

It’s been a wonderful year so far at Wichita State — and that’s because of all the hard work and dedication from you, my fellow Shockers.

As a token of my appreciation for all that you do, WSU is providing all benefits-eligible employees two personal days away from work during the upcoming campus shutdown. Employees will not have to use accrued leave for these two days during shutdown and may only use them from Dec. 21, 2022, to Jan. 2, 2023. The two holiday personal days will not be available except during the upcoming campus shutdown.

See these frequently asked questions for more information on your leave days.

Finally, you’re all invited to our annual tradition — the Winter Holiday Party — from 1-4 p.m. Dec. 1 in the RSC Beggs Ballroom. More details to come soon in WSU Today.

Thank you once again for all you’ve done this year for our students, your colleagues and all of Shocker Nation.

Go Shockers!

President Rick Muma
