Recognizing that there may be situations where reporting compliance-related concerns through regular channels may be uncomfortable or otherwise inappropriate, the University has selected EthicsPoint to provide you with a simple and anonymous way to report activities that may involve misconduct or violation of University policy. This helpline service supplements, but does not replace or supersede, existing reporting methods.
You may file a report to Georgetown University here through this web-based reporting system or by calling 888-239-9181. The report or inquiry you submit to the University via EthicsPoint will be handled as promptly and discreetly as possible. EthicsPoint and the University are committed to safeguarding the confidentiality of individuals who submit good faith reports or inquiries and you may remain anonymous if desired. Please note, however, that certain types of reports may be difficult for the University to pursue if you choose to remain anonymous.
The goal of this Helpline is to make such reporting easy and risk-free for you. The University’s Whistleblower Protection Policy [.pdf version] prohibits retaliation against you for making a good faith report or inquiry.
Georgetown University personnel will review thoroughly all reports submitted through EthicsPoint. After making your report, we encourage you to return to this web site periodically using the Report Key assigned by EthicsPoint and your private password. The University may have information about your report or may have some follow-up questions or require further information in order to proceed with an investigation. In either case, your confidentiality will be protected by EthicsPoint.
