This does not apply to graduate student workers, but all students receive substantial vacation.
Academic job comes with a lot of vacation time anyway. CU is no different than other universities in the US.
23 vacation days and 3 personal days
dependent on chair's discretion, but flexible
26 days plus 11 holidays
It used to be more than 30 days, but not any more.
Generous policy- 23 days per year for officers, increases to 28 for very long-term employees. 23 days can carry over per year but must be used within 12 months.
Very generous paid time off/ vacation. More than average employer.
One of the best I have had.
Management & Seniority always win when it comes to vacation and time off.
