Scaled Jobs in the Library

The title and salary structure continues the idea of creating additional job titles for some jobs found systemwide or university-wide based on a small, medium, and large designation. We call this scaling. If there is a scaled job available, universities should choose that job for their employees.

  • Scaling is not title progression.
  • Scaling is a type of further refining the market pricing for a job.
  • For example,


    TTC Title


    Athletics Assoc Dir


    Athletics Assoc Dir (B)


    Athletics Assoc Dir (C)


Institution Scale
System A – no ( )
Milwaukee A – no ( )
Eau Claire (B)
La Crosse (B)
Oshkosh (B)
Platteville (B)
Stevens Point (B)
Stout (B)
Whitewater (B)
Green Bay (C)
River Falls (C)
Parkside (C)
Superior (C)

Scale is based on the size and budget of a university.


(Inst) typically designates institution-wide or systemwide scope and a non-institution version of the same job title typically indicates use at a School/College/Division/Department-level.

Minimum Education Requirements

The minimum preferred education represent the systemwide shared minimum elements of each job description. When posting for an open position, universities can add additional requirements or preferences to their specific recruitment.
