Posted by: Candace Scott on: January 28, 2016 | Print This Page
Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff:
At Johns Hopkins, excellence and integrity are central to our educational and research mission, and each of us plays a role in upholding these values. To help our faculty, staff, and students support a culture of ethical behavior, a new toll-free, 24-hour/seven-day-a-week compliance hotline has been established that replaces the previous We Comply Hotline.
If you or a colleague has a serious concern, you can make a report by calling 1-844-SPEAK2US (1-844-773-2528) or submitting a report online. Reports may be made anonymously and we will do all we can to keep any reports confidential and ensure that they are treated seriously and discreetly.
Please make a report if you suspect:
- Noncompliance with laws and regulations
- Fraud, waste, or other abuse
- Workplace violence
- Faculty, student, or staff misconduct
- Policy violations
- Criminal behavior
- Conflicts of interest
- Any other ethical or legal concerns
Reports of any type can be made through this central point of contact and they will be steered to the appropriate JHU or JHHS representative for follow-up. The hotline is available for all faculty, staff, and students of Johns Hopkins University. It is also open to faculty, directors, officers, hospital staff, trainees, and associated or affiliated contract workers throughout Johns Hopkins Medicine, including its six hospitals and Johns Hopkins Community Physicians.
Thank you for supporting the university’s commitment to integrity and safety.
Vice Provost and Chief Risk and Compliance Officer
