Background Check Policy
To protect the welfare and provide for the safety of the students, employees, visitors and resources of Goshen College, background checks will be conducted by the Office of Human Resources on new and re-hired employees. The scope of the investigation is determined by the requirements and responsibilities of the position. Goshen College also reserves the right to conduct a background check on current employees as it deems necessary. Applicants will be advised that a background check is a condition of employment and that all convictions of a felony level must be acknowledged on the application. Contractual employees and volunteers may be required to undergo appropriate background screening dependent on duties. Vendors whose employees provide service to Goshen College will be expected to give assurance they conduct appropriate background searches for prospective employees.
