Office staff employees are expected to dress appropriately every day for departmental activities and also for interaction with current students, alumni and guests. Area vice presidents are authorized to require specific professional attire for individual departments and offices.
Albion Casual Attire:
As designated below, office staff employees are permitted to wear casual attire (including clean, not torn jeans) that is appropriate for the work place. Departments may require standard office attire on Albion Casual days when employees deal extensively with the public or when departments or specific employees have professional activities scheduled that day.
- Fridays throughout the year
- Fall Break in October
- Day before Thanksgiving in November
- Semester Break in December and January
- Spring Break in March
It is generally not appropriate to wear clothing promoting other colleges and universities to work and preferable to wear Albion College gear. Flip-flops, sweat pants, shorts, warm-up pants and baseball caps are not allowed. (Coaches are not covered by this policy.)
Questions about what is appropriate professional or casual attire should be addressed with one’s supervisor.
