Ethics and Compliance Helpline Process
Report a Concern
The Ethics and Compliance Helpline is a resource for the Stanford Community to raise questions or concerns. Stanford encourages everyone to speak up – if you see something, say something!
Review + Assess
Every concern is taken seriously, evaluated carefully, and referred to an investigative unit, if warranted. The Office of Ethics & Compliance will acknowledge receipt of your report.
Inquire + Investigate
The investigative unit will conduct an inquiry or if necessary, a full investigation. The Office of Ethics & Compliance will track the investigation until completion.
Upon completion of an inquiry or investigation, a conclusion will be reached about whether a violation occurred. Stanford will take any appropriate action to address the concern.
The Office and Ethics & Compliance will notify you when the matter has concluded.
