Staff positions at the University of Portland fall into one of four categories: full-time, part-time, temporary, and volunteer.
Full-time: Full-time staff employment includes staff members working a 35 hours a week minimum as their designated schedule. Most positions have a 12 month duration, although there are a few departments which align with the academic year. These positions are eligible for our University provided benefits.
Part-time: Part-time staff employment includes staff members holding either .5 or .75 of a full-time position. The .5 or half-time positions equate to 17.5 hours a week and are not eligible for University provided benefits. The .75 duration is eligible for the University retirement contribution and may elect other University benefits at pro-rated cost.
Temporary: Part-time temporary or on-call employment refers to those positions that are either determined to be part-time short-term assignments (typically 6 months or less) or occasional immediate coverage for special projects or staffing shortages with no set schedule. There are no University benefits for temporary on-call positions.
Volunteer: Volunteer positions are non-paid and non-benefited engagements.
