Mission and Purpose

Our Mission
The State Universities Civil Service System strives to provides a comprehensive foundation of human resource practices and standards that facilitate the recruitment, retention, and development of staff. We are committed to providing an environment of equal opportunity and access for all employees and applicants. Employees thus form the foundation which assures the opportunity that each university/agency can fulfill their teaching and research mission on behalf of the State of Illinois.

Our Purpose
To carry out its statutory obligation to establish a sound program of personnel administration at state supported institutions of higher education and at certain allied agencies, the State Universities Civil Service System, hereinafter referred to as the University System, provides the essential function of administering, developing, and maintaining the basic rules and procedures related to the employment of professional (non-academic), technical, and support staff at each major Illinois public higher education university and affiliated agency. Among its many responsibilities, the University System provides direct guidance and support services to universities/agencies in such areas as employment, examinations, classification plan management, salary administration, compliance audit reviews, disciplinary procedures, and other business operations related to the management of support staff personnel.
