Columbia College Chicago expects that its employees and students will act ethically and with integrity, and abide by all college policies and rules. While the college encourages individuals to report inappropriate conduct through normal lines of communication, it understands that there are times when reporting to an immediate supervisor (for staff) or to a faculty member or administrator (for students) may be inappropriate or uncomfortable. Accordingly, employees, students, and third parties who suspect any violation of college policies or applicable federal, state, or local laws and regulations (“Misconduct”), may instead make a report to an independent firm - EthicsPoint - via the internet or telephone hotline (“Whistleblower Hotline”).
The Whistleblower Hotline is available around-the-clock, seven days a week. Individuals may report anonymously.
