Ethics & Compliance
Reporting non-compliance is the responsibility of everyone at Texas State, whether it concerns them, a co-worker or fellow student, or someone they have never met. The university has many ways to report questionable activity and individuals may use the method they are the most comfortable with.
- The fastest and most efficient way to resolve an issue is to take it directly to the supervisor or manager closest to the problem.
- But, for whatever reason someone is unable to report it in person, there are hotlines.
The university will make every effort to keep identities anonymous. Additionally, both the state and federal government have “Whistleblower” laws, designed to protect individuals who come forward to report non-compliance. These laws prohibit negative job actions because of whistleblowing actions. Reporting non-compliance helps to make Texas State a better place to work, study, and live.
Visit the official Ethics & Compliance website to learn about the required training.
