Title & Total Compensation Project – 2021 Implementation

The University of Wisconsin System has embarked on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project (T&TC) is to modernize the existing title and compensation programs which will, in turn, attract and retain the best talent for the organization.

After a lengthy delay due to COVID-19, it has been announced that the new title structure will be implemented in November of 2021. The full title and standard job description library is currently posted on the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website.

To prepare for this implementation, we expect that employee-manager conversations will begin in July of 2021. During these meetings, employees will discuss their proposed mapped title with their manager. Employee feedback and questions are appropriate, valid, and expected during these employee-manager conversations. Training for managers will take place in June, 2021.

If you are interested in learning more about the Title & Total Compensation Project, please consider attending one of our upcoming virtual open forums:

No need to RSVP, just mark your calendar to attend utilizing the links above! We will also be recording the sessions and will make those available on the HR Connect blog.

More details about the Title & Total Compensation Project will be communicated to employees in the HR Connect weekly email newsletter and blog throughout the summer and early fall. In addition, information can be found on the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website.

On behalf of the campus project team and leadership, we would like to thank you for your continued engagement as we take the next steps in this initiative. Please contact Human Resources at hr@uwgb.edu or ext. 2390 if you have questions.

Pre-Tax Versus Roth TSA Contributions

The UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) Program offers great options to save for your long-term goals. With most UW TSA providers, you can contribute on a pre-tax basis, Roth (after-tax) basis, or a combination of both.

With pre-tax contributions, current taxable income is reduced, and both principal and earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis. When funds are withdrawn, it is taxed as regular income in the year you receive it.

With Roth (after-tax) contributions, the contributions are included in taxable income in the year you make them, but the account balance and earnings are not taxed when you take a qualified distribution. A distribution is qualified if you made your first Roth contribution at least five years before the distribution date, and you are at least 59½ years old.

Wondering which you might benefit from most? Watch this short video: Pre-Tax vs. Roth (After-Tax) Contributions.

Start saving today! You can contribute a percent of your pay or a flat dollar amount. The easiest way to enroll is to submit a completed EZ Enrollment to Human Resources. To enroll with Ameriprise or Lincoln, you will need to work with a representative.

Contact us:

  • Phone: (920) 465-2390
  • Email: hr@uwgb.edu

It’s time to have a conversation with your students about their plans to continue working for Summer 2021 and/or Academic Year 2021-2022. Student supervisors will be receiving emails with current student appointments in late-April and will need to provide updated information to our office.


The last day of work for graduating seniors and those not returning for the Fall Semester is May 14, 2021. This applies to all student employees, work study, or regular. If your student employee is graduating or will no longer be enrolled, you may have the option to hire them as a University Staff Temporary (UST) employee. All UST requests have to be approved by leadership before hire. Please contact Human Resources with any questions about this process.

Thursday, September 2, 2021: First day of classes for the 2021 Fall Semester


As a reminder, the Student Payroll Calendar outlines weekly hour limits.  During summer break, starting on 5/16/21, departments may allow students to work up to 40 hours per week.  As outlined on the calendar, the July A payroll (6/20/21-7/3/21) does have a weekly limit of 20 hours.  Note that the 25-hour per week limit for the academic year resumes with the August B payroll period on 8/22/21.


These reports are sent bi-weekly via email to students with an FWS award. This email contains FWS amounts and balances. Ask your FWS student employee(s) to provide you with these emails as a way to monitor award balances.  Monitoring FWS balances will assist you when scheduling hours and help avoid exceeding a student’s FWS award.


Limited Work Study funding is available for students that complete a summer financial aid application at www.uwgb.edu/financial-aid/forms/summer.asp.  Please note: Students do not need to be enrolled in summer courses to be eligible for Work Study funds; however, students must maintain adequate enrollment for Fall 2021.  As always, changes in credit load may impact financial aid eligibility.  Summer Work Study will begin on May 23, 2021.


Open positions should be posted in Handshake.  There is an Employer Help Center that can address many questions you may have about using the system.  Please contact the Student Employment Office (studentemployment@uwgb.edu) with any questions.

2021 W-2 Forms will be sent to the student’s home address, and a copy will be available in the portal at the end of January 2022.
