Compliance, Ethics, & Reporting Hotline
While the University of Georgia has many systems of checks and balances to guard against inappropriate actions by its employees, no system can guard against all wrongdoing. Therefore, in cooperation with the Board of Regents, the University has established a hotline as one way through which faculty and staff may report apparent incidents of wrongdoing on campus that need to be addressed.
If you wish to make a report through the University hotline, you can call 1-877-516-3467 or click on the link below. The University hotline is anonymous, independently operated and is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The University of Georgia 's existing procedures will remain in place for anyone wishing to pursue reports or complaints through established channels. You can continue to report improper activities through your supervisor, or to the office charged with the responsibility for ensuring compliance with a specific policy.
Reports involving allegations of harassment and/or discrimination that fall within the University of Georgia Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy should be reported directly to the Equal Opportunity Office in keeping with that policy.
Complaints involving the University of Georgia Grievance and Disciplinary Review Policy should also continue to be reported directly to the Office of Legal Affairs in keeping with that policy.
If you wish to make other kinds of reports through the University, you should contact one of the following offices.
Equal Opportunity Office
Office of Legal Affairs
Internal Auditing Division
Office of Research Integrity and Safety
Any attempt to intimidate or retaliate against a person for filing, responding to, or otherwise participating in a hotline complaint is forbidden. Any person who makes such an attempt will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment. If any person involved in the hotline process feels that they are being or have been retaliated against for participating in these procedures, they should immediately contact the Office of Legal Affairs for review. The University of Georgia policy on retaliation can be found here: Protection Against Retaliation Whistleblower Protection.
