Bentley Ethics HelpLine

Bentley University is a learning community that embraces our core values which include caring, diversity, honesty, and respect. To ensure we are living our values we are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards in our operations and working to create an environment free from discrimination, harassment and bias. We encourage members of the community to share information about any activities that may involve improper conduct, violate Bentley policies, or constitute a violation of law. Bentley has partnered with EthicsPoint to provide a confidential and anonymous option for reporting. You may file a report by selecting the "Make A Report" link at the top of this page, or by calling the EthicsPoint hotline by dialing toll-free 1-866-ETHICSP (866-384-4277).

EthicsPoint allows community members to report incidents that include categories like discrimination, harassment, bias, financial misconduct, workplace safety, hazing, conflict of interest, workplace bullying and others. When you select "Make A Report" at the top of the page you will see a list of these reporting categories. After selecting a category, you will be taken to a reporting form. Before submitting your report you will be asked to create a password. After submitting the report, you will be given a report key. Please keep a record of your password and report key so that you can access your report again. If you are reporting anonymously, please remember to log in, using the "Follow up on a Report" link at the top of this page to see any communication from the University or to learn about any progress. All reports will receive a response within two (2) business days. Please note that anonymous reports are often difficult to investigate and may limit our ability to respond in meaningful ways.

Reports received through EthicsPoint will be handled with privacy and discretion, and will only be shared with those administrators who can address these concerns. Upon submission of a report, EthicsPoint will promptly forward the report to the appropriate campus representative which can include the General Counsel's Office, Human Resources, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, the Title IX Office or a combination thereof. Bentley may request additional information from the reporting party and will use EthicsPoint to request such information, if necessary, as well as provide updates on the status of the matter. In all cases, your anonymity will be protected unless you chose to disclose your name. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting.

Bentley has established a number of policies and procedures for handling the concerns of members of our community. EthicsPoint is not a substitute for those other avenues to report concerns. Instead, the EthicsPoint system is intended to offer an additional means of reporting, especially in situations in which the individual is unable or unwilling to use the existing procedures. This system also provides a method of reporting issues or complaints anonymously.

To Make a Report

You may use either of the following two methods to submit a report:

  • Select the "Make a Report" link at the top of this web page.
  • OR
  • By telephone through the EthicsPoint Call center by dialing toll-free 1-866-ETHICSP (866-384-4277)

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 5-6 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.
