Reports can be made on more than 40 categories of issues, including:

  • Employee, student, and customer service relations.
  • Discrimination, sexual assault, and sexual harassment.
  • Retaliation against whistleblowers.
  • Financial issues like accounting irregularities, records falsification, grant mismanagement, wage/hour issues, or theft of cash or goods/services.
  • Academic issues like research misconduct.
  • Operational and environmental issues, like data privacy violations, product quality, and safety issues.
  • General issues, like fraud, conflict of interest, animal care, and athletics.
