With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UC Irvine conducts institutional reference checks for candidates finalists to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer of appointment into Ladder Rank Professor series, at all ranks (i.e., assistant, associate, and full). The institutional reference checks involve contacting the administration of the applicants previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the Universitys Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UC Irvine requires all candidates of Ladder Rank Professor series, at all ranks to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled Authorization to Release Information into AP RECRUIT as part of their application. If the candidate does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for all ranks of the Ladder Rank Professor series positions will be subject to institutional reference checks.
