Hiring managers and search committee chairs and members can maximize their chance of the perfect hire with a deeper understanding University of the Pacific's search process and tips and strategies to find the best person. Additionally, knowing their responsibilities under the University's Affirmative Action and Equal Opportunity Employer (AA/EOE) plans if important to their success. The Search Committee Training is designed to do these things. The orientation consists of understanding your role as a search committee member, a review of the applicant tracking in PeopleAdmin, selection criteria, anti-bias awareness, interviewing skills, reference checking, and more. It also fulfills the University's legal compliance requirements under AA and EEO. The training program takes under one hour and Human Resources recommends it for the first meeting of the search committee for the open position in question.

University of the Pacific, in an effort to ensure compliance with federal employment laws, is conducting an extensive internal audit of our Employment Eligibility Verification form I-9 across the three campuses.

The employer will be assessed significant fines for incomplete or missing I-9 forms.  

In the next few months, Human Resources will review and identify forms missing or incomplete.  HR will notify the employee and request assistance in correcting an error or incomplete information.  Please assist us with corrections or omissions as quickly as possible.
