Georgia Southern University Ethics and Compliance Reporting Hotline
Georgia Southern University recognizes that an ethical, efficient, and effective work environment is essential to successfully accomplish our mission. As a result, we have always placed a high priority on assuring that each member of our university community has the opportunity and means to convey any matter that could compromise that environment. While Georgia Southern University has many systems of checks and balances to guard against inappropriate actions by its employees, no system can guard against all wrongdoing. Therefore, in cooperation with the Board of Regents, the University provides a hotline as one way through which faculty and staff may report apparent incidents of wrongdoing on campus that need to be addressed.
The Ethics and Compliance Reporting Hotline allows concerns to be reported confidentially by phone or on-line. The hotline does not replace the existing reporting mechanisms, including reporting concerns to an employee’s supervisor, but rather serves as an additional reporting option. For more information on existing reporting mechanisms, please see Georgia Southern University’s Non-Retaliation/Whistle-blower policy (policy #2576). GSU’s existing procedures will remain in place for anyone wishing to pursue reports or complaints through established channels. You can continue to report improper activities through your supervisor, or reports may be made directly to the Equal Opportunity & Title IX Office, Office of Legal Affairs, or Human Resources.
If you wish to make a report through the University’s hotline, please call 1-877-516-3445 or click on the link below:
The University’s hotline is anonymous and is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. This is not a 911 or emergency service. If you require immediate assistance, please contact your local authorities.
What would you like to do?
