This Is Auburn OFFICE OF AUDIT, COMPLIANCE & PRIVACY
Division of Institutional Compliance & Privacy
The Division of Institutional Compliance & Privacy promotes and supports a culture of compliance and ethical conduct at Auburn University. Institutional Compliance & Privacy does not assume the duties of existing substantive compliance areas which were created to address specific legal and regulatory requirements. All ongoing compliance activities continue in their existing reporting structures. Institutional Compliance & Privacy's role is to centralize the information produced by these activities, provide coordination to ongoing efforts, and to assess Auburn University's overall compliance performance. With this goal, we can provide to Senior Administration and the Board of Trustees consolidated, organized and risk-based information in an objective manner.

Anonymous Reporting Hotline

Auburn University uses the EthicsPoint anonymous Reporting System to enhance communication and empower individuals to promote safety, security, and ethical behavior. Use this anonymous, confidential system to report situations, events or actions by individuals or groups that you believe unethical or otherwise inappropriate. Frivolous or unfounded reports do not help foster a positive workplace. This hotline service does not replace our existing reporting methods for reporting fraud, waste, abuse or other potentially illegal activities. The University continues to encourage stakeholders to report concerns or suspected violations to their supervisor or other campus entities as appropriate. If you are uncertain if a situation violates University policy, is illegal or constitutes harassment or discrimination, you may use EthicsPoint to obtain clarification. We would much rather have you ask questions than let potential problems go unchecked. However, EthicsPoint should not be used for immediate threats to life or property. If the situation presents an immediate threat to life or property call emergency -- 911
