Job Classification

  • Indiana University of Pennsylvania, one of the 14 state-owned universities comprising the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) uses prescribed and formal classification standards to classify all non-instructional positions. These standards are developed and affected by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State System in order to appropriately represent all positions that exist within our organizations.   

    Those engaged in administering the position classification program at IUP believe administrators and staff at the institution should be provided with an explanation regarding the policies and principles that serve as the basis for the position classification system. Our intent is to provide information, to support future deliberation, and to promote greater understanding. 

    Since the responsibilities of any given position may be affected by the dynamics of reorganization and change, it should be understood that the position classification process is designed to respond to change by assessing whether additions or deletions of duties have impacted the proper classification of a position.
