Welcome to the Columbus State University Ethics and Compliance Reporting Hotline

Columbus State University recognizes that an ethical, efficient, and effective work environment is essential to our continuing to successfully accomplish our mission. As a result, we have always placed a high priority on assuring that each member of our university community has the opportunity and means to convey any matter that could compromise that environment. Reporting through your supervisory chain frequently produces the most thorough and timely resolution of a matter and is encouraged. However, other reporting avenues, such as the Office of Human Resources, Office of the Provost and University Police, have been and continue to be readily available. In keeping with our efforts to expand alternatives for reporting matters of significance, we have now added Hotline reporting through a service provided by an independent company, Global Compliance. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allows you to voice your concerns, and to remain anonymous if you prefer. This service also allows you to anonymously send additional information or upload attachments if available, and also receive feedback or questions on your report via a report number and PIN.

Of special concern are fraud, waste, and abuse as well as harassment of any kind, given that they so directly impact our stewardship responsibilities and the well-being of individuals within our campus community. Yet, we would encourage you to report any other significant issue as well through any of the methods available to you.

This service is more than just a Hotline through which individuals can report issues of suspected fraud, waste or abuse. We also want to solicit questions, comments and feedback about areas that could be streamlined and made more efficient and effective.

Please do not hesitate to use the channels described above to express any concerns and ideas you may have. We value and welcome your input.

Sincerely,
Dr. Chris Markwood
President
