Comprehensive higher education background checks aid educational institutions in a number of ways: reduce liability for negligent hiring decisions; help satisfy heightened security concerns; reduce workplace safety issues; safeguard against resume scandals.
Higher education background checks are an important part of the employment process for colleges and universities. Whether hiring new staff or screening existing faculty members, we aid you in the factors to examine, which regulations apply, and we simplify the process with professional assistance. Simple background checks aren’t sufficient for higher education hiring. Colleges and universities seek individuals who hold specific degrees, have completed exact courses, have accreditations, or are published, and more. A quick public record search simply does not present the required information in higher education background checks. As the higher education job market becomes more and more competitive, organizations must protect themselves from the risk of fraudulent activity by candidates. Another growing concern the safety of students and staff. Establishing a safe environment for all who attend, led by a quality workforce, is a priority. The right process delivers higher education background checks with the information you need to make appropriate hiring decisions. Though most students attending colleges are adults, some freshman students enroll and attend as minors, and many higher education organizations take part in programs involving minors, such as dual enrollment/credit partnerships and other youth programs. State regulations for higher education background checks do apply to college and university staff in many cases, depending on how state law is written.
We work with you to determine the appropriate services for your higher education background checks to establish a quality workforce and a safe environment for all. We also specialize in PA ACT 153 compliance requirements required in the state of PA.
