UC has partnered with NAVEX Global/EthicsPoint to provide you with a simple, anonymous way to report activities that may involve illegal, unethical or inappropriate behavior in violation of UC policies. If you file the report via phone, you will first hear a recorded message introducing the NAVEX Global/EthicsPoint hotline. Then you will be asked to press ‘1’ to speak with a communications specialist. Press ‘1’ to file a report or follow up on an existing report.
UC will use its best efforts to protect those who, in good faith, report suspected illegal, unethical or otherwise inappropriate behavior in violation of UC policies.
After you file a report an investigation will be performed, if an investigation can be done based on the information you have provided in the report. An investigation may involve talking with people identified in your report and examining documents. During the investigation it may be possible for the people that we speak with to determine that you are the reporter, even if we don’t know who you are. Also, UC is a public institution subject to Ohio’s open record law (Sunshine Law). If you choose to submit a report we may need to release your report and investigatory records should a public records request be made.
