As a field, Asian American Studies emerged at UCLA over a half century ago to serve the demands of diverse constituencies united by a need to link community engagement, innovative scholarship, and principled change. To address those needs, our field has prioritized interdisciplinary approaches to labor, migration, gendered racialization, empire, sexuality, and myriad forms of organizing, resistance, community, and creativity. Through our research, teaching, and service, we have maintained a commitment to social and economic justice by providing a home in the academy for envisioning and implementing those objectives.

With this commitment as well as a commitment to addressing all forms of academic misconduct, UCLA conducts targeted employment reference checks for finalists to whom departments or other hiring units would like to extend formal offers of appointment into Academic Senate faculty positions. The targeted employment reference checks involve contacting the finalists’ current and prior places of employment to ask whether there have been substantiated findings of misconduct that would violate the University’s Faculty Code of Conduct. To implement this process, UCLA requires all applicants for Academic Senate faculty positions to complete, sign, and upload the form entitled “Authorization to Release Information” into RECRUIT as part of their application. If the applicant does not include the signed authorization to release information with the application materials, the application will be considered incomplete. As with any incomplete application, the application will not receive further consideration. Although all applicants for faculty recruitments must complete the entire application, only finalists (i.e., those to whom the department or other hiring unit would like to extend a formal offer) considered for Academic Senate faculty positions will be subject to targeted employment reference checks.
