Business operations at Cal State San Bernardino and its Palm Desert Campus will be closed Thursday, March 31, in observance of the state holiday commemorating the birthday of the late labor leader César Chávez.

The holiday falls during the university’s spring break of the spring semester; no classes are in session March 28-April 1. However, except for the holiday, all campus administrative offices are operating throughout the week.

University business offices will be closed on Thursday, March 31, and will reopen on Friday, April 1.

University Police will remain on duty on all days when the campus is closed.

Former California Gov. Gray Davis signed legislation in 2002 making Chávez’s birthday a state holiday to promote service to the communities of California in honor of the late labor leader’s life and work.
