To Faculty, Staff, Students, Patients, Clients, and Volunteers:
I need your help. It is vital that the University identify and respond to any serious departures from the requirements placed upon the University and its personnel by law, policy, agreements concerning research and business, expectations of civility, and high ethical standards for University business conduct and the professions represented among faculty and staff. This UM Hotline has been established as a means for employees, as well as patients, clients, volunteers, and others who interact with the University, to report serious matters that merit attention and corrective action.
By using the Hotline links to the left, or by calling the Hotline at 1-866-594-5220 (toll-free), you will be able to report serious issues that need to be addressed by the University. Your report will be recorded by EthicsPoint, a contractor independent of the University, and then referred to the appropriate officer of the University for prompt response, appropriate investigation, and needed action. Our Chief Accountability Officer, Roger Ward, will oversee the operation of the Hotline and the actions taken in response to Hotline reports.
If you use the Hotline, I encourage you to identify yourself, so that we can contact you to gather more information as needed. But I understand and respect that some reporters will prefer to remain anonymous. The EthicsPoint service allows the University to communicate with all reporters, including anonymous reporters, to gather more information and to report resolutions of issues.
In some cases policy or law will require that a Hotline report be referred to another organization (for example, the University System of Maryland Internal Audit Office or the Office of the Attorney General). A person making a Hotline report that is referred will be advised of the referral if practical and if permitted by law.
I am grateful for your support of this important program. It is a tool that will help us bring our University to the highest level of excellence.
Jay A. Perman, M.D.
