The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse is committed to affirmative action. As part of our

the race, gender and ethnic identity of all applicants for employment. Please help us compile
this data by completing the enclosed Equal Employment Opportunity Information Request
Form. You need to only fold and seal it for mailing directly to the Affirmative Action &
Diversity Office. The search committee does not see this information; completing or
not completing the form will have no bearing upon your qualification for present or future

In the spirit of the Americans with Disabilities Act, UW - La Crosse makes every effort to
ensure that our recruitment and hiring process is accessible to all applicants. If you have a
special need that needs to be accommodated to aid your participation in our recruitment
process, please contact me so that I can make the appropriate arrangements.
As a public institution, the university is required to disclose the names of all applicants and
nominees for open positions. Wisconsin Statute 19.36(7) provides every applicant or
nominee the opportunity to request in writing that their identity not be revealed in our
required institutional listing of applicants and nominees. The identities of final candidates,
those who are invited and accept an invitation to interview, will be released upon request. If
you have no objection to your name being released during the recruitment process, no action
is required. If you do not want your identity released unless you become a finalist, please
return the enclosed form to me.
Employment at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse will require a criminal background
check. A pending criminal charge or conviction will not necessarily disqualify an applicant. In
compliance with the Wisconsin Fair Employment Act, UW-La Crosse does not discriminate
on the basis of arrest or conviction record.
The search process is likely to continue for several more [weeks/months]. We will notify you
if you are a finalist or when the position has been filled.
