Our job classification system is a role- and contribution-based system that assigns each job a classified role, level, and market-based salary range to ensure pay equity across the university.
Each job is assigned a role based on the nature of the work. There are three roles: operations, professional, and leadership.
- Operations roles: Support the day-to-day operations of the university, with a focus on what the work is and how it needs to be done. Roles can be either administrative/technical or academic/clinical/research.
- Professional roles: Provide expertise in a profession or discipline, with a focus on applying principles, concepts, and theory. Advanced knowledge, skills, and expertise are typically acquired through higher education. Professional roles can be either administrative/technical or academic/clinical/research.
- Leadership roles: Involve leveraging resources and staff to accomplish work. A leader translates broad vision and goals into short-range and long-term plans. The focus of leadership jobs is primarily on leading others and making strategic decisions that have broad impact on their area of oversight.
