Faculty, staff, and students have an obligation to understand and follow the laws, regulations, policies and procedures that govern university academic and business practices, and to assure that violations are handled appropriately.
The University of California Hotline, (800) 403-4744, provides an avenue for reporting concerns anonymously. Employees are also encouraged to discuss concerns about possible improper activity directly with their supervisors or department heads, and to use other campus reporting mechanisms currently in place.
Note: All UCSD departments should print and prominently display the poster "How to Blow the Whistle on Suspected Improper Activities" (PDF). The poster provides information about what can be reported, how to report, and protection from retaliation.
The Hotline is:
- Available 7 days a week, 24 hours a day
- Uses an independent service with trained personnel to field calls
- Relays concerns to the university for review and action
