Reporting "anonymously" means that the reporting party reports to the University without identifying themselves, and want someone in the University to be aware of the experience, but do not want to be involved in an administrative investigation. The University selected EthicsPoint to provide a direct and straightforward way to anonymously and confidentially report activities that may involve criminal, unethical, or otherwise inappropriate behavior in violation of the University's policies posted here: EthicsPoint Confidential Reporting Information.
EthicsPoint reports are initially shared with the Assistant General Counsel. An anonymous report of alleged discrimination, harassment, sexual misconduct, and retaliation is forwarded to the Director of Equal Opportunity and Title IX, ordinarily within 24 hours. The University may be limited in its ability to investigate or respond to anonymous reports if it does not have sufficient information from which to follow up on such a report.
