Policy Rescission Approval

On July 26, 2022, President Rothman approved the recission of SYS 1276, Title Definitions. As a reminder, rescinded policies are housed on the Recently Retired Policies Page for three (3) years. For more details on the rationale behind the recission, see the summary below.


SYS 1276, Title Definitions

The purpose of this policy was to provide UW System institutions with a titling structure within the framework of employee categories that covers all UW System employees as required by Wis. Stat. § 36.115(2).

The rationale for the approved policy rescission:

Job titles and standard job descriptions were migrated into the Job Title Library (JTL) as part of the Title and Total Compensation (TTC) project. SYS 1276 is no longer an accurate accounting of job titles. Rather than undertake a major rewrite to duplicate information that already exists in the JTL, the preferred option is to rescind this policy. The existing job title list in this policy is obsolete.
