Confidential Hotline and Website Available

“If you witness illegal, unethical or improper conduct on campus or in the workplace, the hotline and EthicsPoint website provide a simple, anonymous way to report it.”

Published November 16, 2016

UB has partnered with EthicsPoint, a third-party hotline and secure website that provides a confidential reporting mechanism to advance our university's safety, security and ethical practices.

Accessing the Secure Website

This secure website can be accessed at www.buffalo.ethicspoint.com and the confidential hotline can be reached by dialing 844-678-0455, toll-free within the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico or Guam.

This is a safe and confidential reporting channel — no retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring, in good faith, about potential breaches of university policies or procedures or for seeking guidance on how to manage suspected misconduct.

Who Can Use this Website?

The EthicsPoint website can be used by UB faculty, staff and students. Every one of us has the ability, responsibility and opportunity to raise questions or voice concerns about workplace and university issues in a secure and confidential manner.

The EthicsPoint Hotline Is Not a Replacement

The EthicsPoint hotline and website are not intended to replace existing policies and procedures nor are they for reporting threats to life, personal safety, or theft of personal items. For these types of emergencies, call 716-645-2222 to reach University Police or 911 for off-campus emergencies.

Spam, phishing and other online security issues should be reported directly to UB Information Technology.

To report issues concerning employment-related discrimination or harassment, it is recommended that you contact Human Resources or Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI). You may consult with an EDI representative without revealing your name. EDI can be reached through their website or by phone, 716-645-2266.
