Academic, administrative and staff employees are reminded they may voluntarily reduce the number of hours they work this summer through UT’s annual Voluntary Summer Reduced Hours Program. Summer time off must be approved in advance by your supervisor and is unpaid.

“In addition to the University’s new winter break schedule, this opportunity enables individuals to spend extra time with family and friends, to travel or otherwise relax before fall semester begins,” said Wendy Davis, interim associate vice president for human resources and talent development. “It also helps UT to reduce expenditures at a time when work schedules are somewhat slower for certain departments.”

There is no deadline to present the form; however, advance notice will help departments to appropriately plan for absences, as needed.

All voluntary summer reduced hours are subject to approval by your supervisor.
