Everyone working for or on behalf of East Carolina University has an obligation to be aware of the rules and regulations that govern their work and an obligation to seek answers and guidance when unsure about a course of action or situation.
While everyone is encouraged to work with his/her supervisor, administrator, or contact person in evaluating and reporting potential violations, the Office of Institutional Integrity guarantees the right of anyone to confidentially and anonymously discuss or inquire about compliance issues or report suspected violations directly to the Chief Integrity Officer. Also, confidential reports may be made to BSOM (Brody School of Medicine) Legal Counsel or the ECU Office of Internal Audit.
There will be no reprisals for inquires or good faith reporting of actual or possible violations of the Division of Health Sciences (DHS) Code of Conduct. DHS will protect, to the fullest extent allowed by law, the identity of anyone reporting a violation. All reports will be investigated with protection of the identity of the subject(s) of the investigation to the fullest extent possible.
It is a serious violation of DHS policy to falsely report a violation or to retaliate or attempt to retaliate against anyone who makes a good faith report of a suspected or known violation.
