Missouri State University is committed to excellence and integrity at all levels, expecting the highest degree of ethical conduct. Those values are expressed in the University Community Principles, and reiterated in the fifth goal of the long-range plan: Modeling Ethical and Effective Behavior as a public institution. Many long-standing University policies and procedures ensure that the University conducts its business with the highest of ethical standards, honesty, accountability, and openness in the decisions that we make.
Because the University takes this obligation seriously, we have continued to provide various mechanisms within the University to assist and encourage employees and students to come forward in good faith with reports or concerns about suspected compliance issues, without fear of reprisal or retaliation. The Board of Governors has also approved the University’s Whistleblower Policy. This policy authorizes an independent third-party vendor, EthicsPoint, to provide 24 hours a day / 7 days a week, ethics compliance hotline for students, faculty and staff. This hotline accepts reports via either a toll free phone number, or the internet, and assures anonymity during the report intake process when requested.
Please Note: Once EthicsPoint has completed the anonymous or non-anonymous report intake process via secure website or toll-free number, Missouri State University official(s) are then responsible for the timely investigation of the reported compliance issue or concern.
This Hotline should NOT be used for matters related to course/teaching evaluation. Please refer to the appropriate college dean or Office of Provost.
This hotline should NOT be used for Matters related to Performance appraisals and salary administration. Please refer to: http://www.missouristate.edu/human/
