Reporting Misconduct Policy
All members of the University community are expected to conduct University-related business with honesty and integrity, and must comply with all governing rules, regulations and policies. This includes:
- employees (faculty and staff) and
- students and individuals employed by the University, using University resources or facilities, or receiving funds administered by the University and
- volunteers and other representatives when speaking or acting on behalf of the University.
Read the full Administrative Policy: Reporting Suspected Misconduct.
No member of the University community may retaliate against an individual because of the individual’s good faith participation in:
- reporting or otherwise expressing opposition to, suspected or alleged misconduct;
- participating in any process designed to review or investigate suspected or alleged misconduct or non-compliance with applicable policies, rules, and laws; or
- accessing the Office for Conflict Resolution (OCR) services.
A causal relationship between the good faith participation in one of these activities and an adverse action is needed to demonstrate that retaliation has occurred.
