Administrative Program Specialist
These administrative staff include department, unit and small school/college level staff who provide specialized services associated in managing daily administrative activities in a variety of areas including instructional and research areas. They have greater responsibility and independence of action than the support focus provided by an Administrative Specialist. Such professional staff work can be distinguished from a Program Manager in that the area is not typically recognized as a free standing activity. They may be similar in function to Administrative Officer, but may have less direct control of policy development and are often in units smaller than the usual size of a school, college, or administrative division. These individuals often have expertise in the discipline area which directly affects their ability to perform their job.

Lecturer
Provides formal classroom or laboratory instruction in an academic discipline, either independently or under the general supervision of a faculty member. Effective delivery of instructional material, testing and grading are the primary duties of a Lecturer. However, the degree of involvement in course and curriculum development, course scheduling, advising and subject matter expertise differs significantly depending on the prefix.

Use of Lecturer Title for Graduate Students:
The lecturer title is normally limited to individuals who have at least a Master's degree and are no longer enrolled as graduate students. However, graduate students may be given the lecturer title (rather than the usual teaching assistant title) if appropriate.  In most cases, the unit will use the student assistant Lecturer (SA) title instead of the academic staff Lecturer position (see definition under Student Assistant titles).  The Lecturer (SA) title can only be used for individuals enrolled in graduate school or in a professional program and the individual's presence at the university is primarily to be a UW student, not an employee.

Use of graduate students as lecturers may require written approval by the Dean's office. The lecturer title should not be used for a graduate student who is handling sections of a course taught by a faculty member, and should not be used as a substitute for the teaching assistant title .

This function is used for individuals who come from outside the UW System for temporary academic assignments. Normally, the prefix will be comparable to the rank held at the individual's home institution. There may be cases where an individual's assignment at the UW-Madison is temporary, but no "home institution" is involved. In those instances, a visiting faculty title may still be used, with the appropriate level determined by the department executive committee after reviewing the individual's credentials in comparison with similarly qualified members of the UW-Madison faculty. Documentation supporting the selection of a visiting title must be provided to the appropriate dean's or director's office. Generally, such appointments do not last longer than one year and may not exceed two years without the approval of the Chancellor or his/her designee.
