To Faculty, Staff, Students, Patients, Clients, and Volunteers:
I need your help. It is vital that UMB 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 professionalism, and high ethical standards for UMB staff and faculty. This UMB Hotline has been established so that UMB employees, as well as patients, clients, volunteers, and others who interact with UMB, may report serious matters requiring attention and corrective action. This Hotline is available to report sexual misconduct and other sexual discrimination affecting the working and learning environment of UMB.
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 issues that need to be addressed by UMB. Your report will be recorded by EthicsPoint, a contractor independent of UMB, and then referred to the appropriate officer of UMB for prompt response, appropriate investigation, and needed action.
If you use the Hotline, I encourage you to identify yourself so that you can be contacted as needed. I understand and respect that some reporters will prefer to remain anonymous. The EthicsPoint service allows UMB to communicate with all reporters, including anonymous reporters, to gather more information and to report resolutions of reported 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.

Please note that UMB's Hotline is not established to receive reports about the central offices of the University System of Maryland or about any University System institution other than UMB.
