Local Options for Reporting Misconduct/Guidance

If you have concerns about misconduct, you should first speak with your supervisor or unit manager. They will be in the best position to resolve issues at a local level. If you are not comfortable with discussing your concerns at the local level or your supervisor is part of the concern, MSU provides other methods for reporting misconduct. You can call the Misconduct Hotline, managed by a third party service provider, at (800) 763-0764, or you can submit a report online. No matter how you decide to make a report, you can always choose to remain anonymous when you do so.

If you suspect misconduct or a violation of University policy has occurred, you can also contact one of the offices listed below to make your concern known to MSU. The University prohibits retaliation against individuals who make reports in good faith of known or suspected misconduct.

A printable copy of the misconduct hotline poster can be found here.
