The University of California, Santa Barbara strives to provide the safest possible work environment; to protect key organizational assets such as people, property, and personal or other sensitive information; and to enable hiring authorities to make prudent employment decisions for career, limited appointment, contract, and student employee positions designated as critical based upon more comprehensive job-related information as consistent with Systemwide Personnel Policies for Staff Members - Policy 21.E: Background Checks.

To support these efforts and to minimize risk to the University, a criminal history background check is required if you have accepted an offer of employment for a critical position. Another background check will be required if you are an existing or prior non-represented employee, have accepted an offer of employment for another critical position and if it has been more than six months since your last background check. Your background check will be conducted by third-party vendor Universal Background Screening (our campus standard) unless a DOJ/FBI Live Scan is required (for select positions only). An offer of employment is contingent upon completion of a satisfactory criminal history background check as required.

In accordance with the "Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act" (Clery Act), UCSB publishes an Annual Security Report to provide information regarding campus safety and security policies, crime statistics, and resources to current and prospective.
