Adjunct Faculty FAQs

Completing New Hire Paperwork

Your College Dean or designated Doane representative will work with you and the Office of Academic Affairs to assist you with completing the new hire paperwork. 

If you want to get a jump start on your new hire paperwork, you can do so by clicking on the links in the new hire checklist. Please send the completed forms to the Office of Academic Affairs at The I-9 needs to be completed in person at Doane University. If circumstances prevent you from visiting Doane University, you may have an Authorized Representative witness your completion of Section1 of the I-9 forms, and the Authorized Representative will need to examine and make copies of your documents. 

The Authorized Representative must be completed by someone other than a relative who can verify your documents and confirm your employment eligibility. 

A current employer, attorney, banker, colleague, or neighbor might be possibilities. The document does not need to be notarized. Please present your I-9 documentation to the Authorized representative and include a photocopy with your form when returning the completed document. Contact the Office of Academic Affairs to coordinate complete of the I-9 form.
