Reporting Concerns of Misconduct
As guided by the Reporting Concerns of Misconduct Policy, all members of the Saint Louis University community are responsible for ensuring that university operations are conducted with honesty and integrity. If you have a reason to believe that a member of the community may have violated a law, rule, regulation or policy you have a responsibility to submit a good faith report of those concerns.
Saint Louis University's Non-Retaliation Policy prohibits retaliation against any individual who, in good faith, reports an allegation of misconduct or participates in an investigation. A causal relationship between the good faith participation and an adverse action is needed to demonstrate that retaliation has occurred.
Your options for reporting a concern are:
- Contact your supervisor or appropriate person in your department, school or unit. This is often the first course of action to report concerns.
- Contact the Office for University Compliance and Ethics.
- Use the SLU Integrity Hotline – the University’s anonymous hotline; submissions can be made online or by calling 1-877-525-5669.
