Background Check Policy
The University strives to ensure as safe an educational and employment environment as possible for all of its constituents and will, therefore, conduct a Background Check on all individuals who receive a contingent offer of employment with the University. Additionally, the University reserves the right to conduct a Background Check on any employed individual who has applied for an internal transfer and has been offered the position, as may be necessary to ensure such safe surroundings. This Policy does not include provisions for the University to conduct random Background Checks.
The University’s Human Resources department administers the Background Check Policy. For detailed information about this policy, see the Human Resources web-site at www.southwestern.edu/hr.
