Compensation & Classification

A small plant growing from a pile of coins.

UC Santa Cruz recognizes that our success is only possible through the hard work and dedication of our employees. The Compensation & Classification team’s objective is to establish fair and equitable pay practices and assist campus managers with salary decisions that help recruit, retain, and motivate highly qualified employees. Compensation Analysts are available to consult with Managers/Supervisors and HR Liaisons on classification of positions, pay issues and to interpret pay policy and procedures.
