Report Concerns

The University is dedicated to the highest standards of ethical conduct. As such, the University encourages employees to call unethical behavior to the attention of the appropriate supervisor, university auditor, other responsible university officers, or report the concern through EthicsPoint.

EthicsPoint should be used to report ethical, policy, legal, or financial issues or concerns. For example, unethical behavior, violations of law or policy, potential conflicts of interest, theft, etc. should all be reported. EthicsPoint is designed to report any violation of our stated policies or other concerns you may have. This hotline service does not replace or supersede existing reporting methods. The University encourages employees to bring concerns to their supervisor, Human Resources, or other campus entities as appropriate.

Internal Audit conducts fact-finding / investigates reports, or assigns them to the appropriate campus department (HR, Title IX, Academic Affairs, etc.). Internal Audit follows up with the assigned department to ensure resolution.

Although EthicsPoint provides the option to report anonymously, be mindful that it can hinder our ability to fully resolve reported concerns. Please periodically log back into your report and answer any follow-up questions we may have posted. Please also provide as many details, specific examples, and supporting documents as possible.

EthicsPoint is NOT a 911 or Emergency Service.

If there is an immediate threat to life or property, or to report a crime in progress, call University Police at 911 or (801) 863-5555.

What is EthicsPoint?

EthicsPoint is a confidential internet and telephone-based reporting tool, with the option of anonymous reporting, that helps UVU and its employees work together to address fraud, abuse, misconduct, or other violations in the workplace. EthicsPoint is managed at UVU by Internal Audit, who are independent of UVU's management team. To assist us in fully resolving your reported concerns, reporters should log back into their report to answer any follow-up questions or comments we may have posted.

Every faculty, staff, and student is responsible for reporting unethical behavior.
