University Hotline

North Carolina A&T State University (A&T) is committed to the development and conduct of operations and activities ethically, honestly, with integrity, and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations, policies, and procedures. A&T’s Compliance Program and Standards of Ethical Conduct serve as a guide for ethical, legal and professional behavior.
The University Hotline is designed to facilitate the communication of concerns of suspected unethical behavior, fraud, waste or abuse. We anticipate that the use of the University Hotline will be the exception, and not the standard, as your immediate supervisor would be the first point of contact. A&T is committed to fostering an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation; however, we recognize that there may be situations in which approaching your supervisor may be uncomfortable or inappropriate. In situations where you prefer to place an anonymous report in confidence, you are encouraged to use the University Hotline, hosted by a third party provider, EthicsPoint, to report instances of potential non-compliance with laws, regulations, university policies, standards or other concerns..
Do not use the University Hotline to report events presenting an immediate threat to personal safety, life or property. Reports submitted through this service may not receive an immediate response. If you require emergency assistance, please contact your local authorities.

See Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) for more information.


The University Hotline provides two ways to anonymously report improper conduct, and/or violations of University policies and procedures, regulations, or state and federal laws:

  • Toll Free Phone call – 877-507-7313; or
  • File a written report online.

Both reporting methods are strictly confidential and are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  Please note that both reporting methods are maintained by EthicsPoint to allow you to make reports anonymously. The best and easiest way to report a concern is to call the toll free number and speak with a specially-trained operator. To facilitate a thorough investigation, please provide as much relevant and specific details as possible about your concern.  In some cases, failure to identify yourself may make it difficult to adequately investigate.

When completing a report, you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Please record your report key and password and store them in a safe place because they cannot be retrieved if lost.

The University expects that reports made through the University Hotline will be made in a good faith effort to address legitimate concerns requiring corrective action.  State law and University policy prohibits interference with or retaliation against a member of the University community who reports suspected improper activities unless the person making the report knows or has reason to believe that the report is false or inaccurate.
