Background Checks

Maryville University seeks to provide a safe and productive environment for students, employees and visitors. The University performs background checks to identify individuals who have committed serious crimes and are disqualified from employment by law or because their presence in the workplace would create an unacceptable risk to the University community.

This policy is applicable to all full-time and part-time regular staff, summer seasonal employees, summer camp employees/coaches and all full-time and adjunct faculty.

The University reserves the right to require that vendors who have employees working on campus provide copies of background checks done by the vendor. It will be determined whether temporary employees will be required to undergo background checks on a case-by-case basis, based on such factors as length of temporary employment, access to students, access to money or confidential information, etc.
