Our Commitment

University at Buffalo is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. We are 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.

In 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 activities that involve unethical behavior or violations of SUNY, UB, and RF policies. This reporting hotline is not appropriate for:

  • Emergencies or immediate threats to life or property. If you require emergency assistance, call 716-645-2222 for on-campus emergencies to reach the University Police Department, or 911 for off-campus emergencies to reach your local authorities.
  • Issues concerning employment-related discrimination or harassment. While the system provides an option for reporting these matters anonymously, it is important to note that due process considerations limit the ability to investigate anonymous discrimination and harassment complaints. To report concerns of this nature, it is recommended that you please contact Human Resources or Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). You may consult with an EDI representative about the situation without revealing your name.
  • Spam, phishing emails or other information technology incidents that should be addressed by IT directly.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.
