Philadelphia University is committed to the proper use of its resources and the public and private support that furthers the realization of its mission. The University is also committed to conducting its affairs in compliance with all applicable laws and with its own policies and procedures. Such adherence strengthens and promotes ethical and fair practices and treatment of all members of the University community and those who conduct business with the University.
Philadelphia University has selected EthicsPoint, Inc. to provide a simple, secure way of anonymously and confidentially reporting activities that may involve unethical or otherwise inappropriate conduct in violation of University policies.
Philadelphia University considers employee concerns very important and desires your cooperation in resolving such issues. This hotline service does not replace existing reporting methods on campus. Employees are encouraged to bring any concerns to their supervisors, Human Resources, or other campus entities as appropriate. EthicsPoint merely provides another outlet for reporting ethics issues, particularly when the reporter’s anonymity is essential.
Philadelphia University asserts that reports submitted via EthicsPoint will be handled promptly and discretely. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of Philadelphia University’s policies, or seeking guidance on how to handle such breaches. Reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be given careful attention with the objective of correcting the situation being reported, if facts can be substantiated. Employees are expected to use good judgment in the use of this reporting system.
