Montana State University’s four campuses are committed to acting with integrity in their pursuit of excellence. As part of this commitment, the university has selected a private contractor, EthicsPoint, to provide an independent avenue for confidential reporting of concerns about suspected legal, regulatory or policy violations.
The MSU Compliance Hotline does not supersede existing channels of communication. The university encourages any employee to discuss suspected legal, regulatory or policy violations with his or her supervisor, Human Resources or other administrators responsible for the program that is the cause of concern.
Reports submitted to the hotline will be given careful attention by appropriate university administrators. Persons making reports are not required to provide their names. We ask that persons making reports retain the report key and password and return to this website within 10 working days of filing a report to check for comments or follow-up questions.
University policy prohibits retaliation or reprisal for making a report or inquiry in good faith or for seeking guidance on dealing with potential or suspected noncompliance. University policy also states that a faculty or staff member who gives false information knowingly or with reckless disregard for the truth may be subject to disciplinary action.
We encourage you to review the MSU Compliance Hotline FAQs prior to making a report.
