Series Concepts

Series Concepts are written job standards and guidelines for each of the job titles and job families used in the UC system. Each Series Concept contains a summary description of the series (a.k.a. job family), short descriptions of each level within the series (a.k.a. level-cutter descriptions), and minimum requirements for each level within the series. Some of the series are quite old, but the general guidelines still apply. Each campus has the delegated authority to implement the series as they deem appropriate. There are system-wide series concepts and locally developed series concepts.

System-Wide Series Concepts

UC Systemwide Series Concepts

"Series Concepts" are written job standards and specifications for the various job families that we use at the University of California. The UC Office of the President maintains a near-complete listing of these specifications for use by all the campuses. You can search for series concepts by keyword, title name or title code at the location above.

Please note: Job Standards/Series Concepts for titles that were initially created in Career Tracks but later accreted into a union can be found on the UC Systemwide Series Concepts site above (examples are BTSA, Couns Psych and Student Health Physician).
