University of Wisconsin–Madison

Title and Standard Job Description Library

This library for UW–Madison and the University of Wisconsin System 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.

To learn more about standard job descriptions, visit the Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Resource Library.

This library is still in draft form and will be continually updated based on feedback through the employee-manager conversation period (see New Standard Job Descriptions created after November 11, 2019). 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.
