Campus Conduct Hotline

Campus Safety

 

Campus Conduct HotlineMillsaps College is committed to conducting its operations with integrity by engaging in lawful, ethical and respectful practices. For this reason, we encourage members of the campus community to make any concerns known to the college. 

Whether these concerns relate to fraud or crime, security or internet abuses, fraudulent financial or business practices, violations, or ethical concerns, the doors of college administrators, supervisors and Human Resources are always open.

Occasionally, though, an employee or student has concern that he or she would like to express anonymously. For these occasions, the college has decided to participate in a service called Campus Conduct Hotline

The Campus Conduct Hotline system is available for your use around the clock, seven days a week. Because the Hotline is operated by an independent organization, any calls made through this Hotline are completely confidential and anonymous.

Using this new reporting service is easy. If you have a question or concern about a possible violation of our Code of Conduct or employment policies, simply dial toll-free to 866-943-5787.

Once you have called the toll-free number, here is how the reporting and follow-up processes work:

  • Your call will be greeted promptly and courteously by a person who makes certain you understand the Campus Conduct Hotline program and how it functions.  If you prefer to make your report in a language other than English just let the person who answers know and they will arrange a translator to participate.
  • At the beginning of the call, you will be provided with a five digit, randomly generated case number that you should use to check back for updates and requests for additional information.  Be sure to write this number down and remember where you put it!
  • You will then be interviewed about the question or concern that is on your mind.
  • Your interview will not be recorded.  Instead the interviewer will be typing notes of your conversation.  Whether or not you choose to provide your name is completely up to you.
  • Within one business-day of your call, a summary of the interview will be forwarded to the appropriate administrator at the College.  Our goal will be to have a basic response back to you in five business days.
  • To receive your response, you will need to call back and provide the five digit case number that has been assigned to you.  At that time, you might be asked to provide additional information or to call back at a later date.  You will be able to keep checking back for updates until your case is closed.

Because of the built in confidentiality, it is important that you try to be as specific as possible about the information you provide. Please be sure to call back in five business days to check to see if any additional information is needed. Alternatively, if you would like someone to contact you directly, you can leave your name, along with a phone number and when you would prefer to be called.

To repeat, at no time is any caller required to identify himself or herself and all information provided can be completely confidential and anonymous.

We are committed to maintaining the highest ethical standards at Millsaps.  If you experience or observe what you believe is inappropriate behavior and are unsure what to do, we hope you will feel comfortable talking with your supervisor, a member of the college administration, or Human Resources. If you feel you cannot, however, please use the Campus Conduct Hotline to report it.  Also, if you have any general questions about how the Campus Conduct Hotline works, contact Human Resources directly at 601-974-1443.
