Within UW System, career growth is available through a Title Change and Promotion/Progression.
Re-titling of a position occurs when there has been a substantive change in the duties and/or scope of responsibilities. The position has evolved over time, and the changes must be related to, or an extension of, the functions initially assigned to a position.

Promotion/career progression is natural advancement within the area of specialty of the position, based on the incumbent’s successively greater experience, expertise, applied ability and responsibility within the title series. While there is an expectation that the position and incumbent will progress through different levels associated with the title series, the specific criteria and timeframes for progression may vary depending upon the functions of the position.
