Galveston College Open Positions
Guidelines for Faculty Qualifications
Galveston College is an equal opportunity institution in education and employment. It is the policy of Galveston College to provide equal opportunities without regard to age, race, color, religion, national origin, gender, disability, genetic information or veteran status. It is the goal of Galveston College to select employees who are committed to continuous caring, innovation, and creativity, open to change and committed to the College’s mission of meeting the needs of the 21st century learner.
Faculty or Adjunct Faculty Positions
Unofficial college transcripts from an accredited institution may be submitting during the hiring process. If selected for employment, official transcripts must be provided to the Human Resources Office prior to the date of hire.
Transcripts from foreign institutions must be transcribed by a company listed on the NACES website, with a course by course evaluation.
The Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (IRCA) requires verification of the identity and employment eligibility of all employees. Galveston College is an E-Verify employer. E-Verify is an Internet-based system that compares information from an employee’s Form I-9, Employment Eligibility Verification, to data from the U.S Department of Homeland Security and Social Security Administration records to confirm employment eligibility.
Veteran’s Preference in Employment
In compliance with Texas State Senate Bill (S.B.) 805, Galveston College is committed to providing a preference in employment to eligible veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of veteran and orphan of veteran applicants who meet minimum qualifications and any special qualifications for the position to which they apply. The required preferences do not compel the College to appoint a veteran, disabled veteran, surviving spouse of a veteran or orphan of a veteran. However, they do require that those who meet the veteran preference eligibility be appointed when their application assessment, combined with the veteran’s preference, is equal to, or higher than that of a non-veteran.
Selective Service Requirements
HB 558, passed by the 76th Legislature, requires that male U.S. citizens, regardless of where they live, and male immigrant aliens residing in the U.S. are required to be registered with Selective Service if they are at least 18 years old but are not yet 26 years old. Persons subject to this law must present proof of compliance or exemption from registration with Federal Selective Service System law in order to be eligible for employment.
