Ethics Line Disclosures
This reporting line does not replace or supersede existing reporting methods. LMU strongly encourages University employees to report concerns of misconduct to supervisors, Human Resources, Internal Audit or through other established channels whenever possible. Student misconduct should be reported through Student Affairs or to Public Safety. Certain matters cannot be accepted through the reporting line because they cannot be appropriately addressed when the reporter chooses to remain anonymous; Loyola Marymount University may not be able to investigate such allegations in an anonymous report. Reports on these matters will be forwarded to Human Resources rather than divisional SVP's or other managers. Reporters should contact the appropriate HR representative to complete such reports.
Please use the recommended procedures outlined by the relevant University policies to report Discrimination or Sexual Harassment, matters related to Faculty Grievances and other matters involving employee complaints.
Reports submitted via Ethics Line will be handled promptly and discreetly. No retaliatory action will be taken against anyone for reporting or inquiring in good faith about potential breaches of the University's policies or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches. Reports submitted through the Ethics Line will be given careful attention by LMU with the objective of correcting the situation being reported, once the facts have been corroborated.
