UC Davis supports family-friendly recruitments and Work-Life Program.
The University of California is committed to creating and maintaining a community dedicated to the
advancement, application, and transmission of knowledge and creative endeavors through
academic excellence, where all individuals who participate in University programs and activities
can work and learn together in a safe and secure environment, free of violence, harassment,
discrimination, exploitation, or intimidation. With this commitment, UC Davis conducts a reference
check on all finalists for tenured positions. The reference check involves contacting the
administration of the applicant’s previous institution(s) to ask whether there have been
substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct.
To implement this process, UC Davis requires all applicants for any open search for
assistant/associate/full professor to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to
Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If an applicant does not include the
signed authorization with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete,
and as with any incomplete application, will not receive further consideration. Although all
applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists considered for
positions with tenure or security of employment will be subject to reference checks.

recruiting a diverse faculty community. We welcome all qualified applicants to apply, including
