Business Ethics Hotline

Sound business conduct requires that each employee, as a basic condition of employment, assume responsibility for safeguarding and preserving the assets and resources of the University, particularly those for which he or she is responsible. In accordance with the University Professional Standards and Business Conduct Policy, each University employee is expected to report any instance of suspected ethical misconduct to the Director of Internal Audit. If presented with reasonable evidence of a suspected ethical misconduct, the Director of Internal Audit will conduct an audit to determine if the reported suspicions of fraud are valid.

Situations may arise when an individual discovers or reasonably suspects unethical or illegal behavior and yet may be reluctant to report it for fear of reprisal or retaliation. Accordingly, Boston College has selected EthicsPoint, a third-party vendor, to provide an anonymous Ethics Hotline.

EthicsPoint will facilitate confidential and anonymous reporting of concerns about any aspect of University compliance, through either a direct telephone call or an online intake process.
