Job Descriptions

Please note: During the 2020-21 academic year, these policies, procedures, and practices will move to the CLAS Policies and Procedures website. At that time, this page will be discontinued.


Every staff position in the College needs a local job description. Follow the Guide to Creating a Local Job Description instructions. This site provides a link to the Local Job Description Template. CLAS requires this form for establishing all new P&S positions. Information regarding job function, family and classification for P&S positions can be reviewed at Your Work, Your Pay, Your Career.

Merit job descriptions should be consistent in format with the University's Merit standard description for the position classification. Individual job descriptions should be more detailed and customized to the specific position than the generic University job description. Merit job descriptions can be reviewed at Merit classification and codes.

Please reference P&S Education and Experience Advertising Guidelines for appropriate degree and experience requirements normally expected for the position.
