Background Check Procedure for Prospective Faculty

Introduction

The University of Notre Dame is committed to providing a safe and secure environment for the University community in support of its overall mission. This procedure is intended to help the University achieve its goal of providing a safe and secure environment, especially for children, vulnerable members of the population, and those likely to be in subordinate positions, by requiring the use of Background Checks in the hiring process for all Faculty members.

The Background Check will be used solely to evaluate candidates’ eligibility to be engaged in any work capacity by the University, and will not be used to discriminate on the basis of race, color, age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, pregnancy, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, sex, marital status, disability, status as a U.S. veteran, political persuasion or intellectual viewpoints.
