Harrisburg University of Science and Technology will be closed on Monday, June 20th in observance of Juneteenth. University offices will reopen on June 21st.
Juneteenth is a United States federal holiday, celebrated annually on June 19. It commemorates the end of slavery in the US on June 19, 1865, when Union Army general Gordon Granger proclaimed freedom for slaves in Galveston, Texas, the last state of the Confederacy with institutional slavery. This year, June 19 falls on a Sunday, so the federal holiday – established in 2021 by President Joe Biden – will be observed on Monday, June 20.
