EthicsPoint is NOT a 911 or Emergency Service:
Do not use this site to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property. Reports submitted through this service may not receive an immediate response. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local authorities.
The Catholic University of America is committed to conducting its activities with the highest integrity and ethical standards, in compliance with all applicable laws and regulations, and in accordance with all University policies. In support of this goal the University is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of laws or policies have occurred.
In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use the Compliance and Ethics Helpline, hosted by a third party provider, EthicsPoint. To make a report you may use the toll free telephone number listed at the right, or this online portal page. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to suspected violations of laws, regulations or policies. You also may simply ask for guidance related to policies or procedures. The Helpline is not a complaint line. Matters that do not involve violations of law or policy should be addressed through normal administrative channels.
The information you provide through the Helpline will be sent to the University by EthicsPoint on a confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. All good faith reports, regardless of whether they are substantiated, may be made free from fear of retribution per the University’s Non-retaliation Policy.
