Hosted by the University’s compliance services department, the annual Compliance and Ethics Week—held Nov. 6–10—aims to shine a light on Title IX protections. University community members are encouraged to register for the interactive session on Monday, Nov. 6, at 11 a.m. 

Facilitated by Maria Sevilla, deputy Title IX coordinator, the virtual session, “Preventing and Addressing Discrimination in the Workplace,” will focus on the importance of preventing discrimination in the workplace and addressing inappropriate behavior.

Fight fraud, report a concern.

A comprehensive and confidential reporting tool, the University Hotline is available to any individual who wishes to report a concern and remain anonymous. Reports can range from fraud, abuse, and misconduct related to University policies and procedures, to concerns about violations of irregularities or improprieties. 

The University Hotline should not be used for resolving workplace disagreements or addressing communication issues between employees and their managers. These kinds of concerns should be handled with an individual’s supervisor or with their HR Client Services representative.

Students—undergraduate, graduate, doctoral, and medical—may report concerns via the Student Affairs Dean of Students Office website or the Miller School of Medicine Graduate Studies website.

University employees who report an activity in good faith that may be in violation of a law, rule, or regulation are protected against retaliation by the University's Whistleblower Protection Statement.

Visit or call 877-415-4357 to make a Hotline report.

Areas across the University use this database to publish and review official information about a variety of topics, including cost sharing, sponsored awards, invoicing and financial reporting, information security, purchase card and travel card guidelines, and the student rights and responsibilities handbook.
