Reporting Via the Compliance/Ethics Hotline

 

We have earned a reputation as an institution that maintains high standards in everything we do. Building on that kind of reputation requires a strong work ethic and a commitment – by everyone – to make our school the best it can be.

If you see or suspect misconduct, report it immediately. While speaking directly to management or the Compliance Office represents the most effective way to report your concerns, our school also offers an anonymous option for maintaining a culture of integrity. We have retained the services of The Network, an independent reporting service that allows you to communicate anonymously and confidentially via Internet or telephone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
