No. The existence of a criminal history will not automatically preclude an applicant from employment or service with the university.  A Criminal History Check is intended to verify that the applicant is free from criminal convictions related to the position responsibilities that would make the applicant unqualified to perform the responsibilities of the position. The President, or his/her designee, will review the Criminal History Check information and determine the applicant’s fitness to hold the position.  Every applicant’s criminal history report is evaluated on a position-by-position basis.
