University Employment

Spouses may participate in “work-study” at the School by assisting staff and faculty with various projects and assignments. Work-study students are paid for their time.

Hiring for non-teaching positions at the University is handled through University Office of Human Resources.

All employees of the University (temp, work-study, regular staff) are subject to prescreening. Eligibility for employment is contingent upon successful completion of a background investigation and drug screening. This process usually takes about three to four days but can take up to three weeks.
