Welcome to Purdue University’s Anonymous Reporting Line (Hotline)

Purdue University has selected The Network to provide a simple anonymous way to report suspected fraud, waste, or abuse of University assets, as well as, regulatory noncompliance. This service allows you to communicate anonymously and confidentially via Internet or telephone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. An anonymous reporting program has been in place since 2005, but this service will now be provided by The Network.

This type of program is an integral part of a healthy University environment. The University has financial and operating controls in place to provide reasonable assurance that fraudulent, illegal, or dishonest activity on the part of University faculty, staff, officers, or business contacts is prevented or detected, but the potential for inappropriate transactions and behavior still exists within the University, as it does in any organization. Purdue University is committed to handling reports submitted via The Network as promptly and discreetly as possible. If the information is not sufficient or detailed enough, it may not be possible to conduct an investigation. Individuals may choose to identify themselves and will not suffer any retaliatory action for reporting or inquiring in good faith. Please be aware that if you choose to disclose your identity, the University may not be able to protect your identity should a public records request be made or a subpoena issued.


Do not use this site to report events presenting an immediate threat to life or property. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local authorities.


If you see or suspect unethical or illegal behavior, you may report your concerns anonymously to The Network for Purdue University, Purdue University Calumet (PUC), Purdue University North Central (PNC), Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), College of Technology Statewide, Purdue Extension, Purdue Agriculture, and all other Purdue sites:
