Our Commitment:

The University of Colorado is committed to conducting its affairs ethically and in accordance with federal and state laws and regulations as well as university policy. Each member of the faculty and staff is expected to share in this responsibility. The University of Colorado is also committed to preventing, detecting, and correcting violations of applicable laws, regulations, and policies. Thus, the university has chosen EthicsPoint to provide employees with a simple, anonymous method to confidentially report:

  • allegations of fiscal misconduct by university employees,
  • violations of federal or state law,
  • serious or recurring violations of university policy in the performance of university duties,
  • gross waste of university funds and property, and
  • serious or recurring abuse of university authority (improper conduct).

If you have concerns or questions about the following topics, in addition to EthicsPoint, the links below will provide you with the appropriate contacts for each campus and system administration to voice your concerns as well as assist you in understanding the university’s policies. In addition, the Ombuds Office provides confidential and informal assistance to any student, staff member, faculty member, or administrator who is experiencing conflict with another person or persons within the university community or who has concerns about university-related academic or administrative issues (e.g., decisions, services, responsiveness, etc.).

 

To Submit a Report:

NOTE: Do not use this site to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property. Reports submitted through this service may not receive an immediate response. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local authorities immediately.

This reporting mechanism is not a substitute for, nor does it supersede, any existing reporting methods or protocols for reporting suspected problems or complaints. The filing of a complaint through EthicsPoint does not relieve a person with an obligation to file a complaint or to conduct an investigation of any such obligation. For example, the University’s Administrative Policy Statement on Sexual Harassment requires that allegations of sexual harassment be reported to the campus sexual harassment officer.

Reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be forwarded to the proper university officials for appropriate action. Reports will be processed as promptly and discreetly as possible. The university encourages you to return to this website within seven business days using the report key assigned by EthicsPoint and your private password. The university may have information for you or may need additional information to investigate the allegation. If you follow-up on a report, you will see an indication as toClass Room whether your reported matter is resolved, but, due to confidentiality requirements, you will not necessarily be informed as to how the matter was resolved.

Colorado state law and university policy provide that an appointing authority or supervisor shall not initiate or administer any disciplinary action against an employee for disclosing information in compliance with the requirements of the statute or policy.
