Monday, Aug. 3, will be the first unpaid furlough day for employees at California State University, Fresno. Administrative offices will be closed as part of the plan to help make up for a $16.3 million shortfall in state financial support. A second administrative furlough day is scheduled Aug. 10.
On both days, instructional activities on campus will continue, but support and administrative offices will be closed.
University Police and Plant Operations will ensure that facilities scheduled for instruction are open, functional, safe and secure. Janitorial services will be provided for a limited number of restrooms supporting classroom activity. Support will be provided for scheduled research labs.
