Thursday: UReport Explained

Any University community member can report a situation or conduct they believe violates a law, regulation or University policy. From fraud to unsafe working environments, including sexual harassment or retaliation, there are many different reasons to report. The UReport system allows for anonymous reporting. Individuals who have a good faith belief that there has been a violation of a rule or regulation governing any University activity are encouraged, and in some cases required to report their concerns. The University counts on your vigilance. Please help us maintain a safe and ethical environment by reporting concerns of misconduct.
