West Virginia University requires a background check for all new employees. Internal employees who transfer to a position with a material change, such as going from a non-driving position to a driving position, shall also receive the additional necessary checks.
According to federal law, West Virginia University must publish and distribute an Annual Security and Fire Safety Report (ASR) to current students and employees and to give notice of its availability to prospective ones. The ASR includes statistics for the previous three years concerning reported crimes that occurred on campus, in certain off-campus buildings or property owned or controlled by West Virginia University, and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. The ASR also includes institutional policies concerning campus security, such as policies concerning alcohol and drug use, crime prevention, the reporting of crimes, sexual assault, and other matters. You can obtain a hard copy of the ASR by contacting the W. Va. Univ. Police at 304-293-3136 or by accessing it here: https://police.wvu.edu/clery-act/campus-safety/annual-clery-report
