UPS Policy Change

With the implementation of the University Personnel System (UPS), the information in this section has changed effective July 1, 2015. For more information on this topic, see the UPS website.

All positions are assigned to a specific title and salary range. This assignment of positions to titles is based on “best fit” using the title definitions.

Titling for University Staff positions, including permanent, project, and limited-term positions, is consistent with the Office of State Employment Relations (OSER) classification specifications.

Titling for Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointees positions, including faculty, academic staff, limited appointees, and employees-in-training, is consistent with the University Personnel Guidelines (UPG).

Title Change

Faculty/Academic Staff/Limited Appointees and University Staff employees may be eligible for a title change or reclassification/reallocation when certain criteria are met.

Information on title changes for university staff positions can be found in Chapter ER 3 of the Administrative Code.

Information on title changes for unclassified positions can be found in UPG #1.

For more information on title change, please contact your local Office of Human Resources.
