In response to the unknown variables of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Wisconsin System in consultation with UW–Madison, will extend the TTC Project timeline and target an implementation date in later 2021 for new job titles and job descriptions.

This library for the University of Wisconsin System and UW–Madison contains proposed standardized job titles and job descriptions for Academic Staff, University Staff, and Limited Appointees.

A standard job description describes work at a high level and connects UW jobs to similar jobs in the market. It is a general set of responsibilities, without regard to any specific employee, that describes the work an employee performs and their role and impact to the organization.

Review the titles in the library by job family and job sub-family, or use the search tool to look for key words in job titles and job summaries.

  • The standardized job description and minimum preferred education represent the systemwide shared minimum elements of each job description. When posting for an open position, institutions can add additional requirements or preferences to their specific recruitment.
  • Some job titles and job descriptions are not changing as a result of the project.
