Anonymous Reporting

Anonymous Reporting Line

Concerned about a possible violation of law or policy and are uncomfortable raising it through normal channels? Use the Anonymous Reporting Line, the University’s confidential reporting service.

What to Report: Report any situation or University conduct you believe violates an applicable law, regulation, government contract or grant requirement, or University policy. You do not need to know the exact law or requirement, or be certain a violation has or will occur. When in doubt, the better course of action is to report.

What not to Report: Report emergencies to 911. This reporting service also does not include employment concerns that are not legal or policy violations, purely student concerns, or issues for which the University is not responsible. Again, if you are uncertain, the better course of action is to report.

Your Obligations as a Reporter: University employees are expected to report good faith concerns about possible violation of any policy, law, rule, regulation, contract or grant governing any University activity, and are expected to be truthful and cooperative in the University's investigation of allegations. Knowingly making false reports can lead to discipline.

Your Rights as a Reporter: All reports of Compliance issues will be handled in strict confidence to the extent possible or permitted by law. Your inquiry can be made without fear of retribution. University policy prohibits any retaliation against individuals who report compliance issues in good faith.

How to Use:  The Anonymous Reporting Line is available seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and is managed by Ethico/ComplianceLine, a third-party vendor.  You are greeted by a trained interviewer who documents your concerns. You don’t have to give your name, and the call or transaction is not recorded. A report number will be assigned, which you will need when you check back. Then the information will be relayed to the appropriate University office to investigate your concern. Using the report number, you may call or e-mail to follow up or add more information and remain anonymous.
