Nova Southeastern University has adopted a set of core values to which it is committed, including the core value of integrity. Nova Southeastern University has an expectation that employees will engage in ethical behavior and conduct themselves in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and university policies.
To facilitate this, an external hotline provider, NAVEX Global, has been selected to provide employees with an anonymous method for reporting good faith concerns that may involve improper conduct including violations of law or university policies and procedures. Employees are encouraged to continue to report their concerns through regular lines of communication. In many circumstances the best place to raise a concern or question is with your supervisor, or with a senior manager in your department. These individuals need to know about concerns that arise in the area under their management, and should be in the best position to help you resolve concerns at a local level.
We realize, however, that there may be circumstances when employees are not comfortable reporting a concern in this manner. It is for such circumstances that we have selected NAVEX Global to provide employees with an anonymous method for reporting your good faith concerns.
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.
