Preapproval Requirements and Background Checks
Always speak with your supervisor to gain understanding of the approvals required for your college or unit. Seeking approvals for search waivers are included in the requisition process. Appropriate documentation can be attached for review by OIE or the Director of Talent Acquisition in the requisition workflow.
- Please review the Routing for Actions Requiring Provost Approval located on the Provost’s web page outlining Policies and Procedures. Those seeking Requests for Search Waivers - Faculty or Requests for Search Waivers – Research Faculty should understand the needed information outlined in the Faculty Search and Screen manual.
- Waiver procedures for staff positions are outlined in Chapter 3 of the Staff Recruitment and Selection procedural manual.
All faculty and staff positions are subject to the University’s Background Check Policy, which requires criminal history and sexual offender registry checks for all new hires.
