A/P Faculty Job Architecture

For Virginia Tech to attract, retain, and develop the best talent, it is important to have a structure for Administrative and Professional (A/P) faculty positions, like the structures in place for staff roles and for T&R faculty roles. These structures are the foundation of how we hire, pay, develop, and advance our workforce through clear career paths and competitive and equitable compensation practices. They are also a key part of the university's strategic priority to Be a Destination for Talent.

Virginia Tech's A/P faculty job architecture organizes approximately 2,500 A/P faculty positions that include more than 1,700 unique titles. This architecture does not include university and classified staff positions, which use the Commonwealth of Virginia classification structure, or teaching and research (T&R) faculty positions, which are classified using the college faculty ranking and structure that is outlined in the Faculty Handbook
