Our Commitment

The Citadel is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Ethical Principles for Employees and Ethical Principles for Faculty contain general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics. Our College Policies also provide a framework for ethical behavior.

The Citadel is committed to an environment where open, honest communication is the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards may have occurred.

In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by EthicsPoint, a third-party hotline provider. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations of laws, regulations or Citadel Policies, or as stated in our Ethical Principles pages mentioned above, as well as asking for guidance related to policies and procedures or just providing suggestions.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a completely confidential and anonymous basis, if you so choose. Your comments will be heard and addressed by the Office of Institutional Compliance (843-953-2667) or the Internal Auditor (843-953-5118).
