Under the challenging circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project is working on a minimum three-month extension to the project implementation timeline. Work will still continue, at a slower pace, to validate titles and to create the internal processes required to support the new titling and compensation structure.

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.

  • New Standard Job Descriptions created after the launch of the library.
  • Some job titles and job descriptions are not changing as a result of the project. If you have any questions please contact your local HR.
  • 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.
