WKU makes summer hours change official

Jonathan Lintner

WKU’s administrative council met on Monday and approved a new summer schedule for the university that will run from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. from May 16-Aug. 12.

The main reason for the changes is to save money by not having to cool academic buildings during “higher demand hours,” according to an email from Tony Glisson, director of Human Resources.

Employees will work for seven hours and be granted a 30-minute unpaid lunch period each day.

Glisson said summer classes scheduled for 3 p.m. will be accommodated, and those inconvenienced by the change could possibly work out special hours with their respective department heads.
