Classification & Compensation


PeopleAdmin 7 is here!

As part of this upgrade, a Position Management module has been added to our system which will serve as a repository for position descriptions and facilitate the position creation, update, salary adjustments, and review process electronically for all SPA, EPA Non-Faculty, Faculty, and Post Doc positions. Our recruitment process remains electronic in the new system and includes a new process for posting temporary positions.

Colleges/Divisions have selected system users within their respective units and new users will need approval from their College/Division level. Contact your respective Classification & Compensation or Employment Consultant if you have any for more information
