Presidents Message

Dalton State College 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 campus 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 Campus Police and Human Resources have been and continue to be readily available.

The Ethics Line has been in use since 2008 and has been an important part of our commitment to maintain an ethical culture and reinforce the USG Core Values of Integrity, Excellence, Accountability and Respect. The Ethics Line has been particularly useful in identifying instances of fraud, waste, and abuse. This is vitally important as being good stewards of the resources entrusted to us is a non-negotiable requirement of maintaining the public’s trust.

Additional helpful information regarding the Ethics Line is provided below and on the FAQs linked above.

How to Make a Report.

Reports can be made by phone or online, please see the “Report by Phone” and “Report Online” options above on this page. To facilitate a thorough investigation, please provide as much information about your concern as possible.
