University Ethics Hotline

Wednesday, April 2


We are fortunate at the University of Idaho to have a highly dedicated faculty and staff, strongly committed to high ethical standards and responsible management of the public’s resources. As with most employers, the university encounters an occasional occurrence of unethical or illegal conduct in the workplace. When employees notice or suspect unethical acts, fiscal misconduct, or misuse of university equipment and resources, they should talk with their supervisor. Supervisors, in turn, should contact Internal Audit. However, when employees are not comfortable speaking with their supervisors about the event, the university subscribes to an independent, anonymous hotline service for employees to report, in good faith, known or suspected improper conduct of faculty, staff and administrators. The University's ethics guidelines are found in the Faculty Staff Handbook, Policy 3170. To learn more about our hotline service, or to make a report, visit the Internal Audit Services website.
