The University uses EthicsPoint, an independent provider of hotline services, which offers a simple and anonymous way to report concerns from campus community members, contractors, or the public. EthicsPoint is always available and offers multi-lingual translators. To submit a report online or via telephone, or to answer questions from the University on an existing report, please visit: Ethics Point
Princeton University is committed to conducting its academic and administrative responsibilities in an ethical manner and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations, and University policy. The University not only expects, but depends on you to share in this responsibility through the reporting of concerns which involve possible noncompliance with policy or unethical behavior. All members of the University community are also expected to report all instances of suspected or observed potentially illegal activity per University policy.
Reporting concerns is a service to the University and will not jeopardize your employment or academic status. We expect that reports will be made in good faith to address legitimate issues or concerns. If you have concerns on this point, please see Protection from Retaliation within the University's Rights, Rules, Responsibilities.
