Background Checks

Effective on June 1, 2020, Universal Background Screening replaced HireRight as our campus vendor for online, third-party background checks.

To ensure that individuals are selected who possess the qualifications to perform the duties of the position most effectively and who are best able to serve the University's interests, the University requires job-related background information on final candidates for critical positions and employees who are promoted into critical positions. Background checks are also required for employees being transferred or reclassified into a critical position from a non-critical position. Background checks may include, but are not limited to, confirmation of an individual's identity, review of an individual's criminal conviction record, if any, or verification of any license, certificate, or degree required for appointment.
