ORGANIZATION CHART (12/2001) 


TITLE DESCRIPTION (1999)

Program Manager Titles:

A position assigned one of the Program Manager titles provides management to a specific program.  A program is a coordinated, defined set of services or activities usually focusing on a single objective.  It is recognized as a free standing activity.  Whether ongoing and well established or fledgling, programs are not synonymous with the functional areas from which they operate.

Although primarily a non-supervisory activity, program management often requires the coordination of work within the unit and/or across a number of administrative units.  Program Managers often function quite independently.  A Program Manager title is appropriate when the program or activity managed is not large and/or complex enough to justify an Administrative Director title.  Typically, the services provided by a Program Manager are primarily developed and provided by the incumbent in the title rather than by subordinates.  A large and/or complex program, or one undergoing rapid growth may require that the

Program Manager supervise support staff.  However, a position supervising more than five persons should have its title reviewed to consider whether it might better conform with an Administrative Director title.  Examples of Program Manager titles include Administrative Program Manager and Academic Archivist.

Three suffix levels are provided for the Program Manager function.  These levels reflect differences in experience and knowledge gained by a Program Manager as a program grows and develops; differences in the size and complexity of a program; differences in the degree of supervision that may be required to manage programs of varying sizes and complexity, and other factors.  The determination of the appropriate suffix level (I, II or III) is made by the Department of Human Resources, and is based on an evaluation of the position utilizing the UW System title evaluation rating system.

Laboratory Manager:

Coordinates and schedules the use of a scientific laboratory for research and/or teaching purposes.  Maintains inventories and/or purchases equipment, chemical reagents, or other supplies.  Assists in development of experimental demonstrations for instructional purposes.  Develops and maintains safety protocols.  Responsible for the day-to-day management of the laboratory.
