VAI Commitment

Please direct questions to Jana Hall, Chief Operations Officer (, Ext. 5070).

Van Andel Institute (VAI) is committed to fostering and maintaining the highest standards of integrity and ethical conduct in all activities. Guidelines and policies describing VAI standards can be accessed on the VAI SharePoint Site (refer to the pages for the area of issue, e.g., Compliance, Human Resources, Office of the Director; or visit the resource center to sort for policies or guidelines) or by contacting the Compliance Director. As part of the commitment to maintaining high integrity and ethical conduct within the Institute, VAI has contracted with Ethics Point, an external reporting service, for a means to anonymously and confidentially report issues and concerns to management.

All reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be handled as promptly and as discreetly as possible. The report will be made available only to those at VAI who need to know to assess and resolve the matter. Concerns or issues that can be reported through EthicsPoint include but are not limited to: financial, personnel, research misconduct, human or animal subjects research, intellectual property, purchasing, safety, security, sponsored research, transfer or exports of materials and data.
