Samford University has a phone and Internet-based reporting system called EthicsPoint. The reporting system allows people to report issues or concerns they may have at Samford University in a totally anonymous and confidential manner. It is a critical component in providing a safe, secure and ethical workplace.
EthicsPoint is like the old suggestion box, except that it allows us to do much more in a way that is comfortable for faculty and staff. This tool allows employees to report at work, or at home, depending on your preference. The system also provides a formal mechanism for investigation, follow-up and response.
Samford University guarantees that reports submitted via EthicsPoint will be handled promptly and discreetly. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of Samford University's policies or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches.
EthicsPoint is designed to protect the anonymity and confidentiality of those who use the system. Reports placed at EthicsPoint are protected by the latest encryption technology. The system prevents the reporter from being identified by our internal staff should a report be sent from your workstation on our network. Use EthicsPoint by calling 1-866-384-4277 or via the Ethicspoint website.
