Dear Colleagues,

The holidays are fast approaching, and this is a time when we come together to express our gratitude as a University of Miami family. It is in this spirit that we thank you for making the U a stronger, more vibrant, and inclusive place to work and learn all year long.

Celebrating our accomplishments as a team is vitally important. As you plan your year-end schedules and holiday celebrations, please note that the Friday after Thanksgiving is a holiday for the Coral Gables and Rosenstiel School campuses and a regular workday for the Miller School of Medicine/UHealth, regardless of physical work location. Due to operational needs, you may receive a separate communication regarding this day from your team leader. Please refer to the 2017-2018 holiday schedules for more information. We also ask you to be mindful of University resources and use financial discretion as you plan your departmental and divisional celebrations.

Once again, thank you for your dedication to the University’s continued success. We wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season filled with good cheer.

Best regards,

Jacqueline A. Travisano, Ed. D.
Executive Vice President for Business and Finance and Chief Operating Officer

Jeffrey L. Duerk, Ph.D.
Executive Vice President and Provost
