Homecoming 2020 Holiday
Joseph Glover, Provost and Senior Vice President
Because of COVID-19, all face-to-face events scheduled on Homecoming Friday, October 2, 2020, including the Homecoming parade, have been cancelled or will be held virtually at a later date. In support of a recommendation from our UF Faculty Senate, the Friday, October 2,
holiday will revert to a work and instructional class day. December 24 will be considered an official holiday in its stead.
This shift from October 2 to December 24 will provide benefits of regaining one of the instructional class days lost from the one-week delay of the start of the Fall term, aligning with Alachua County Schools’ decision to hold classes on October 2, and ensuring no change in total hours of holiday leave for UF employees.
UF Human Resources will provide additional details in a later communication.
