Ethics & Compliance Helpline

Main content start

"A situation in the office makes me uneasy."

"This appears to violate policy or the law."

"I don't know who to ask!"

Members of the Stanford community who have concerns may report them, anonymously if desired, and a resolution will be made by knowledgeable individuals. Raising concerns is a service to Stanford. Stanford policy prohibits retaliation against an individual who in good faith reports or provides information about concerns or suspected violations.

Examples of issues to raise through the Helpline: conflicts of interest, environmental health and safety concerns, sexual harassment, theft or fraud, accounting irregularities, athletics compliance, violations of law, contract, or University policy.

Please note: The Ethics and Compliance Helpline is not a 24-hour service.
