Why Critical Research?

Parents, students, and the community rely on rigorous safety standards in higher education organizations. This makes background screening an essential part of hiring campus staff, faculty, and other workers on campus.

Our background screening services deliver reliable, comprehensive reports including criminal records, national sex offender registry, and identity verification. You may also wish to add faculty education verification to mitigate the risk of under-educated faculty or those who received degrees from diploma mills.

Simple to use, our platform gets you the answers you need and ensures the safety and integrity of your organization. Our FCRA-certified team can personalize your package based on your organizations needs.
