     I understand the service expectations presented by the Seattle University's Center for Service and Community Engagement (CSCE) and agree to the following:

    Provide a minimum of two hours per week for at least one academic quarter at your placement site.

    Contact the CSCE staff 296-2569 and report any problems or difficulties that may arise during your service experience  

    BACKGROUND CHECK:  Seattle University obtains or asks others on its behalf to obtain, consumer reports and/or investigative consumer reports, including Background Checks for criminal convictions and civil findings related to violence, abuse, and/or neglect against minors or vulnerable adults, from a consumer reporting agency regarding applicants who will be working with minors.  These reports assist us in evaluating individuals for volunteer and service learner placement with Seattle University's  Center for Service and Community Engagement partner schools and organizations.  

    I understand that this service placement requires me to complete an online Background Check. (Background checks are only required once every academic year).

    I understand that I will receive an email with an online link and instructions for applying for my Background Check from TalentWise.

    If I fail to complete the Background Check application within 48 hours of receiving email instructions, I understand that my registration with this service site may be dropped.

    I understand that I have an ongoing obligation to report any future criminal convictions or civil adjudications to the Center for Service and Community Engagement while I am participating in service.

    I understand that this Background Check does not take the place of any application processes that my service site requires.

    I understand and agree that Seattle University's Center for Service and Community Engagement will receive the results of the background check and can provide a copy of the results to the service site, if the site requests a copy.  Finally, I understand and agree that the Center for Service and Community Engagement has the sole discretion to determine my suitability for participation in any aspect of the program, including my suitability to serve, with or without regard to the results of my background check.

This release and covenant not to sue is binding on my family, my heirs, and anyone else who claims an interest through me or from me.
