Our Commitment

Gannon University is committed to excellence at all levels and strives to support the Gannon community in practicing the highest levels of ethical conduct. To facilitate this, the University has selected EthicsPoint, Inc. to provide a simple, risk-free way to anonymously and confidentially report activities that may involve unethical or otherwise inappropriate activity or behavior in violation of University policies. Gannon University considers employee concerns very important and desires your cooperation in resolving such issues. However, this hotline service is not a substitute for, nor does it replace, traditional existing reporting methods already in place at the University for reporting problems or complaints. The University continues to encourage employees to report concerns or suspected violations to their supervisor, Human Resources or other campus entities, as appropriate. The EthicsPoint reporting system simply provides an additional means of reporting such issues when maintaining the reporter's anonymity is important.

Gannon University asserts that reports submitted via EthicsPoint will be handled in a timely and discreet manner. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of Gannon University policies or seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches. Reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be given careful attention by University officials with the objective of correcting the situation being reported, if facts can be corroborated. The University expects that reports submitted through the EthicsPoint system will be made in a good faith effort to address legitimate issues and concerns, or to otherwise provide reliable information.
