If You Suspect Fraud...

  • Do not investigate the situation yourself

To Report Fraud:

The University of Iowa has implemented a fraud hotline through Ethics Point, a third party hotline provider, that has automated and anonymous reporting mechanisms in place to bring forward misconduct issues and concerns across campus. You may file a report by:

The hotline is managed by the Office of Internal Audit and all reports are investigated as promptly and discreetly as possible with the facts made available only to those who need to investigate and resolve the matter. Ethics Point and the University are committed to safeguarding the confidentiality of individuals who submit reports and University policy prohibits the taking of any retaliatory action against anyone for reporting or inquiring about potential misconduct.
