University Compliance and Strategic Initiatives

It is everyone’s job to report fraud, waste and abuse. It is our job to listen.

Examples of situations that should be reported:

  • Theft or fraud
  • Harassment or discrimination
  • Misuse of resources
  • Safety concerns and violations
  • Threats of violence
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Misuse of information
