Make a Report

How to Report

We encourage faculty, staff, and students to bring concerns initially to their supervisor. However, the EthicsPoint anonymous reporting system is available to report concerns anonymously to the Office of Audit, Compliance & Privacy. Simply click on "Report a Concern" below and select the general category of your concern.


What to Report

What to Report

Individuals should report in good faith any suspected misconduct, fraud, abuse, hazing, or other wrongdoing. Include enough detail to allow review and assessment of the allegation(s). 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 rather you ask questions than let potential problems go unchecked. EthicsPoint should not be used for immediate threats to life or property. If the situation presents an emergency, call 911.

Anonymous Reporting

Why Should I Report?

We all have the right to work, study, live and have a campus experience that is a positive environment. With that right comes the responsibility to act ethically and notify the appropriate people if someone is not acting appropriately. In addition, as stewards of public funds we have a responsibility to the public to ensure these funds are expended in accordance with legal requirements.

Auburn University is committed to integrity, accountability, and compliance with the law. Any employee who reports in good faith suspected wrongdoing is protected from retaliation.



The EthicsPoint system strips away Internet addresses so that anonymity is totally maintained. Plus, EthicsPoint is contractually committed not to pursue a reporter's identity.

EthicsPoint makes reports available only to specific individuals at Auburn University who are charged with evaluating the type of violation and facts of the incident. Each of these report recipients is trained in keeping these reports in the utmost confidence.

The Process

The Process

The appropriate office reviews the allegation promptly, discretely, and professionally to determine whether it can be substantiated. Any discussions and inquiries will be kept in confidence to the extent allowed by law.

If additional information is needed, further communication with the reporter is facilitated through EthicsPoint because of the anonymous nature of the report. Log back in to EthicsPoint with your report key to answer any follow-up questions or obtain information on the status of your report.

Concerns are addressed with appropriate parties to be resolved. Corrective action and/or disciplinary action may be warranted.
