history verification and a degree verification (in some cases)
prior to employment. You may also be required to complete a
fingerprint background check.
Additionally, as an employer in the state of Arizona, NAU is
required to participate in the federal E-Verify program that
assists employers with verifying new employees' right to work in
the United States.
Finally, each year Northern Arizona University releases an
Annual Security Report
. The report is a result of a federal
law known as the Clery Act. The report includes Clery reportable
crime statistics for the three most recent completed calendar years
and discloses procedures, practices and programs NAU uses to keep
students and employees safe including how to report crimes or other
emergencies occurring on campus. In addition, the
Fire Safety Report
is combined with the Annual Security Report
for the NAU Flagstaff Mountain Campus as this campus has on-campus
student housing. This report discloses fire safety policies and
procedures related to on-campus student housing and statistics for
fires that occurred in those facilities.
If you would like a free paper copy of the report, please contact
the NAUPD Records Department at (928) 523-8884 or by visiting the
department at 525 E. Pine Knoll Drive in Flagstaff.
