Reporting Compliance Questions or Concerns

All members of the university community, including faculty, staff, and students, who have a question or good faith concern regarding compliance with applicable laws and regulations or university policies are expected to report such concerns.

Raising such concerns is a service to the university and the Policy Prohibiting Illegal, Dishonest or Fraudulent Conduct prohibits retaliation against individuals who make a good faith report of potential or suspected improper behavior.

In most instances, the best place to raise a concern or question is with your supervisor or with another appropriate person in your department, school or unit. You also may contact Human Resources, the University Auditor, or a member of the university's administration. If you do not feel comfortable reporting such concerns in person, or if you wish to remain anonymous, you may report your concerns through the university’s Incident Reporting Helpline.

The Incident Reporting Helpline can be reached toll free at (1-855-799-8305) or by submitting an online report.  

The Incident Reporting Helpline is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. To ensure caller confidentiality and anonymity, the service is administered by an independent third party, Navex Global.
