Our Commitment

Wichita State University is committed to conducting its academic and administrative responsibilities in an ethical manner and in accordance with all applicable laws, regulations, and University policy. The University not only expects, but depends on you to share in this responsibility through the reporting of concerns which involve possible noncompliance with policy or unethical behavior.

The University Hotline is a reporting tool to assist the University in its efforts to address fraud, abuse, misconduct and other violations, while helping to cultivate a positive environment. The reporting system is built to protect the identity of the reporter and provide a formal mechanism for investigation, follow-up and response.

The University Hotline is not a substitute for existing reporting channels already established by the University. This service is provided merely as an additional means of reporting, especially when maintaining the reporter’s confidentiality is important. The University encourage you to continue resolving disputes through established channels of communication first, whenever possible.

Reporting concerns is a service to the University and will not jeopardize your employment. We expect that reports will be made in good faith to address legitimate issues or concerns. For more information regarding the University’s policy on retaliation, please see Prohibition of Retaliation.

Not a 911 or Emergency Service

The Hotline is NOT to be used in case of emergencies. For emergencies, DIAL 911 or the University Police Department at 316.978.3450
