USciences Compliance Hotline

University of the Sciences in Philadelphia is committed to excellence at all levels and strives to support the USciences community in practicing the highest standards of ethical conduct. To facilitate this, the university has selected EthicsPoint, Inc. to provide an on-line system to anonymously and confidentially report activities involving misconduct, violations of government regulations or university policies, or otherwise inappropriate, unethical or illegal activities involving the USciences community.

The university asks that reports are made in a good faith effort to address legitimate issues and concerns or to otherwise provide reliable information. This reporting service does not replace existing reporting methods already in place for reporting problems or concerns, and you are encouraged to continue to report these to your supervisor, Human Resources or other campus entities, as appropriate. The EthicsPoint reporting system simply provides an additional means of reporting such issues when the reporter wishes to remain anonymous.
