Path Levels

Path levels represent a hierarchical relationship of University positions based upon their relationship in the market place. They are designed to assist staff in their career planning and should be viewed as only one of many factors that go into any career planning decision. They do not represent salary grades or absolute relationships between positions. Units within the University may place varying values on the same positions resulting in a relationship that may represent a higher or lower path level. For these reasons path levels should be considered only a guide followed by more in-depth exploration of posted openings for specific organizations.
