University Compliance Hotline

Northeastern University strives to operate in an ethical, honest, and lawful manner and expects all members of the University community to conduct their activities in accordance with University policies and applicable law. The University strongly encourages all persons to report unethical or questionable conduct through channels that the University establishes for such reporting.  University management expects you to bring forward any concerns to your direct supervisor. However, the Compliance Hotline provides an alternative channel for you to communicate your concerns anonymously. Northeastern has partnered with EthicsPoint to manage the Compliance Hotline which allows any person to report activity to an external party which should alleviate any concerns about confidentiality. Please know that when you use the Compliance Hotline, you can report misconduct that you observe, or you can gain clarity on whether or not something is cause for concern.  All questions, allegations, and suggestions will be initially reviewed by Internal Audit and responded to in a timely and appropriate manner.

To report an anonymous and confidential concern to EthicsPoint, call 1-855-350-9390 or go to

If you have questions about the Compliance Hotline, please contact Director of Internal Audit 617-373-4041.
