Ethics and Compliance Hotline
The University’s Ethics and Compliance Hotline is an anonymous, 24/7 resource for reporting concerns about legal or policy violations or unethical conduct. By reporting your concerns, you can help ensure the University is following the highest standards of compliance and ethics.
There are two options for reporting:
If you would like to report issues with the University’s face covering or physical distancing directives related to the COVID-19 pandemic, please report these concerns directly to the Dean of Students or Human Resources.
Please note that due to the confidential nature of the Ethics & Compliance Hotline and protocols, we are extremely limited in our ability to investigate COVID-19 public health & safety noncompliance. The University has designated the Dean of Students and Human Resources as the appropriate units to receive reports of noncompliance of this nature.
FOR STUDENTS: If a UArizona student appears to not be in compliance with COVID-19 safety directives, you may submit a Code of Conduct report on the Dean of Student’s website. Specific information about the policy on face coverings can be found on the Dean of Student’s website on Face Covering Compliance. For more information about the student compliance process, please review the Student Code of Conduct.
FOR FACULTY & STAFF: If a UArizona employee appears to not be in compliance with COVID-19 safety directives, please refer the matter their direct supervisor to remedy the situation. If the employee continues to violate the directives, you may work with the assigned Human Resources Consultant. More information about employee compliance can be found on the Human Resource’s website on Face Covering Compliance.
The Hotline should not be used to report emergencies or crimes in progress. Please call 911. For non-emergency situations involving potential crimes, contact the UA Police Department (UAPD) at (520) 621-8273. You may also call UAPD’s anonymous Tips Line at (520) 621-TIPS (8477), but this line is not monitored regularly and is not intended to report crimes in progress, file a police report, or request an immediate response.
For concerns that do not require anonymity, you are encouraged to first report those concerns to your supervisor, higher-level department management, or the University office designated to receive those types of concerns.
For Hotline reports, the University uses an outside vendor that receives your report and sends it to the University without identifying information, unless you choose to provide it.
If there is a designated University office for the concern that is reported, it will be forwarded to that office.
Due to the confidential or sensitive nature of most of the reports received, the Compliance Office is generally unable to provide reporters with the results of any review or investigation.
Retaliation for reporting concerns is prohibited and taken very seriously. If you believe you have experienced retaliation, you may report your concern to the Hotline.
For hazing reports, please call the UA Hazing Hotline, (520) 626-HAZE (4298).
