The Ethics and Compliance Hotline

By Nilufer Joseph, Director, Financial Services, Finance and Administration

The “Ethics and Compliance Hotline” provides employees with an avenue for reporting suspected incidences of ethics or compliance abuses, including  fraud and fiscal misconduct, medical, human resources, research, athletics, and/or environmental, health, and safety issues.

The hotline is not meant to replace or supersede any current reporting methods (e.g., communicating with a supervisor) which exist on each campus, but rather serves as an additional reporting method for individuals to report their concerns. The system is managed by an outside entity and provides a confidential way to report matters that may involve fraud, misconduct, or compliance violations. The reporting system is both web and telephone based and is available on a 24-hour/365-day basis for individuals to report known or suspected incidences of wrongdoing that compromise the University’s operations and transactions.

To access this confidential reporting hotline, you can call this toll-free number, 1-866-447-9821, or log on to https://www.compliancehelpline.com/UM.jsp.  If you have questions or need further clarification, please contact either Nilufer Joseph in the Office of the Vice President for Finance and Administration,  Kathy Bunn in the Office of the General Counsel, or Cindy Cover in the Office of the Vice President for Human Resources, by phone or email as indicated below.
