Letter from President Joseph S. Paul, Ph.D.

Southern Miss has long maintained a strong commitment to our core values of integrity and ethical behavior. In order to maintain the highest standards of responsible behavior, I invite you to become familiar with the Southern Miss Hotline.

This new initiative, in partnership with EthicsPoint, provides an easy way to discreetly and confidentially report activities that may involve criminal, unethical or otherwise inappropriate violations of University policies.

Although the Southern Miss Hotline is not a substitute for established channels of responsibility, it does provide opportunities for reporting behavior when those mechanisms are not suitable. The Southern Miss Hotline is operated 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and can be accessed either through this web page or by calling 877-310-0424.

Thank you for your constant support of right conduct.

Joseph S. Paul, Ph.D.
