Brown University Anonymous Reporting Hotline

Welcome to Brown University’s
Anonymous Reporting Hotline

Brown uses EthicsPoint, a third-party service provider, to provide you with a way to report activities that may involve unethical or otherwise inappropriate activity or behavior in violation of Brown University's established policies.

All reports submitted will be given careful attention by the appropriate Brown University Administrators, treated confidentially and discussed only with those with relevant information and on a need-to-know basis, or any other person or entity as required by law. Brown University Administrators will not receive reports in which they are specifically named. Situations reported will be reviewed and addressed in accordance with University policies and protocols.

You may file a report anonymously, or you may identify yourself when filing a report using the phone line or web. When filing a report anonymously, exercise care to not provide details that may reveal your identity.

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Keep your report key and password in a safe place. We expect that reports submitted through the system will be made in a good faith effort to address legitimate issues needing correction, or to otherwise provide reliable information.
