Confidential reporting service for the University of Minnesota

What to Report: You should report any situation or University conduct you believe violates an applicable law, regulation, government contract or grant requirement, or University policy. You do not need to know the exact law or requirement, or be certain a violation has or will occur. If you suspect something is wrong, the better course of action is always to report it. Examples include theft; wage, benefit, or hours abuses; discrimination or sexual harassment; misuse of University property or equipment; violation of safety rules; OSHA or environmental abuse concerns; conflicts of interest; NCAA violations; and intentional misuse of the University's network or computers. 

Select a campus location on the reporting homepage, and then click on the violation categories on the following page for a more complete list.

This reporting service does not include employment concerns that are not legal or policy violations. For these, and other issues, see the topic "Other Reporting Options and Contacts" for a list of University offices to contact about these concerns.
