DePaul uses a Job Family Framework to classify similar roles together.
This helps with consistent and fair application of the staff compensation program. The Job Family Framework also helps to identify potential career paths and facilitate a successful career progression.
The Job Family Framework consists of three different classifications:
- Job Families
- Job Functions
- Job Categories
The Job Family Framework helps to group jobs by the nature of the work, rather than by the organizational or reporting structure.
Your peers within your department are likely part of the same Job Family as you, and may be part of the same Job Function.
For definitions of Job Categories and Job Levels, please refer to the Salary Administration Guidebook. For a comprehensive listing of Job Families (and their corresponding functions), please visit the Job Families page.
