Wentworth Institute of Technology is committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of policies or standards have occurred. The Institute’s Whistleblower and Anti-Retaliation Policy protects individuals making good faith report relating to the Institute’s financial, accounting or audit matters, and/or to violations of law, statutes or regulations.

In those situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use this hotline, hosted by a third party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You are encouraged to submit reports relating to violations of laws, policies or our standards of behavior and conduct. This service has also been established to report situations where you are concerned about the behavior of another member of our community, but are reluctant to tell someone on-campus. The service is also a valuable tool to ask for guidance related to policies and procedure and providing positive suggestions and stories.
