Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Becomes an Official Middlebury Holiday!

The Administration is pleased to announce that Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Day will be recognized as an official Middlebury holiday, beginning in 2019. This means that all US-based operations will be closed (except for essential services) on MLK Day, in the same manner as operations are closed for the Thanksgiving and Year-End Holiday Breaks, and that benefits-eligible staff employees will be paid “holiday time” for the day.  (Detailed information regarding recording and approving staff time will be provided closer to the holiday. Middlebury faculty will receive information about how the addition of the MLK holiday will affect J-term from the Dean of Faculty’s Office, near the start of the fall term.)  With the addition of this holiday all Middlebury (US) operations are now operating on a unified holiday and floating holiday calendar (see next article for the full FY19 and FY20 holiday schedules.)
