ODU actively seeks to attract and retain an accomplished, diverse workforce supporting a multitude of programs engaging faculty, classified and hourly employees.

Toward this goal, the Department of Human Resources provides consultation to managers and supervisors, recognizing that compensation plays a critical role in this process.

This site provides a variety of information to assist managers in understanding pay practices and position classification in support of their requests and needs.




Classified Positions

The pay system for classified positions is based upon the position's role title and the state's classification system. The position's role title is based upon complexity, results and accountablity stated in classified employee's official position description.





Administrative/Professional Faculty Positions

The Department of Human Resources is responsible for conducting classification and compensation reviews of management requests for salary adjustments, change of duties, and title changes for all AP faculty. HR, in conjunction with the Office of Institutional Equity & Diversity, reviews the EEO impact on pay practices.





Hourly (Wage) Positions

The pay system for hourly positions is based upon the position's role title and the state's classification system. The position's role title is based upon complexity, results and accountablity stated in hourly employee's official position description. Hourly employees may obtain a copy of their position description from their supervisor or Human Resources.
