UT Dallas Ethics and Compliance Hotline Is Available 24/7

UT Dallas Ethics and Compliance Hotline Is Available 24/7
The Ethics and Compliance Hotline is a confidential and non-retaliatory way to report noncompliance or unethical behavior outside the normal chain of command. This may include financial matters (fraud, theft of University assets or conflicts of interest) and other misconduct or violations of UT Dallas/UT System policy.

Normal administrative methods, such as talking to your supervisor, are still important first-line approaches for reporting questionable activities. However, the hotline is available whenever conventional channels are unknown or unacceptable, or an employee wishes to report anonymously.

To learn more, visit the Ethics and Compliance Hotline website. All reports made to the hotline are investigated.
