It is important that the University's mission be supported by qualified job applicants, with a safe and secure environment for all constituents, including students, visitors and employees. The University conducts background checks on all regular full-time and part-time employees. An increasing number of colleges and universities are now conducting employment background checks on adjuncts.
Effective April 1, 2013, the University will begin conducting background checks on newly hired adjuncts. This check will be done by Hire Rite. Inc., a company that serves other colleges and universities. Please click here for the procedures.
When enrollments indicate that additional faculty support is required, adjunct faculty may be temporarily hired to fill this need. Employment is an agreement for one semester or term executed between the adjunct faculty member and the appropriate university administrator. Each semester, all departments must send an Adjunct to Hire Memo to Academic Affairs for each returning adjunct teaching in that department (all other forms should already be in Academic Affairs.) If the adjunct has not taught at JU for more than one year all new documentation will be needed. Adjunct files are kept for 7 years past the last date of teaching.
Required Completed Documentation to Hire Adjunct Faculty should be submitted to Academic Affairs.
PLEASE NOTE THAT HIRING PACKETS WILL NOT BE PROCESSED UNTIL ALL OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS ARE RECEIVED BY ACADEMIC AFFAIRS.
Adjuncts should refer to the Adjunct Handbook for answers to questions they may have.
