If I file a report anonymously, will anyone at the university ever learn my identity?
This hotline reporting service is provided by an outside vendor called NAVEX Global. NAVEX Global does not utilize call tracing identification. The university will not learn your identity from NAVEX Global if you file an anonymous report.
In some circumstances, however, your identity may nevertheless become apparent. For example, this may occur where the particular assertions of a report suggest that it must have come from one person, or the Reporting Individual’s identity becomes clear, during the course of the evaluation of the report.
No retaliatory action will be taken against any employee for reporting or inquiring about a concern that may involve improper conduct engaged in by a university employee (who is not also the reporting individual) based upon a good faith and reasonable belief that the conduct has both occurred and is wrongful under applicable law, regulation, and/or university policy. Please see Non-Retaliation Policy page for details.
