UW-River Falls Administrative Policy
Application for Immigrant Visas
All applicants for the University of Wisconsin-River Falls positions must be eligible to work in the United States. All new hires must submit documentation establishing both identity and work authorization.
Under certain limited conditions, the University of Wisconsin-River Falls, working through its Human Resource Department, will submit paperwork to petition for work authorization on behalf of individuals. This will only be done for new tenure-track faculty except in exceptional circumstances and at the sole discretion of the Director of Human Resources, in consultation with the Provost/Chancellor/or Vice Chancellor. Exceptional circumstances are considered to exist when the long-term services of such an employee are deemed to be in the best interests of the University and would serve to further the University’s missions of instruction, research and public service. In addition, there must be assurances of a long-term commitment on the part of both the employing department and the employee.
The UW-River Falls Chancellor issues this policy in accordance with the Administrative Policy process.
The VCAF is responsible for the administration of this policy. Request an exception to this policy by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to adhere to the provisions of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary action as provided under existing procedures applicable to students, faculty, and staff, and/or civil or criminal prosecution.
