As members of the University community, we all have a responsibility to help promote a safe and ethical campus environment and be part of the solution. Immediately report concerns or knowledge of any kind stemming from possible noncompliance, discrimination, other suspected university policy violations, crimes, fraud, waste or abuse and/or errors or irregularities in the university's financial accounting practices.
The university concern includes possible violations that occur on university property, including leased facilities, interfere with any university obligation, whether legal, contractual or otherwise; or occur between members of the university community of students, faculty, staff and visitors to UA property.
If anything comes to your attention that looks or feels suspicious, talk to your supervisor, and in the case of a possible crime, law enforcement. If you don’t feel comfortable going to your supervisor, utilize the confidential and anonymous UA Confidential Hotline to report. The hotline is a system-wide tool for receiving tips on risks and issues that could jeopardize the University of Alaska’s financial health, safety or reputation.
