If you have a concern about misconduct, don’t keep it to yourself. Discuss it with a supervisor or contact the Misconduct Hotline.

Welcome to Michigan State University’s Misconduct Hotline

Michigan State University has implemented a telephone and web reporting Hotline to help maintain adherence to ethical practices. The purpose of the Hotline is to provide an anonymous method to report known or suspected misconduct for Michigan State University related to fiscal matters, conflicts of interest, employment, medical/HIPAA, research, safety, athletics, discrimination/harassment, hazing, privacy, retaliation, or any other area of legal, policy, or ethical concern not specifically listed.

The expanded Misconduct Hotline does not replace the University Reporting Protocols regarding child abuse, sexual assault or child pornography. While such issues may be referred to the Misconduct Hotline, employees are also required to follow the reporting protocols. The reporting protocols are available at the Human Resources website.

The University prohibits retaliation against any individual who makes a report in good faith of known or suspected misconduct.
