EthicsPoint is a simple online system for reporting activities that may involve misconduct or violations of University Policy.

This is an additional method of reporting suspected problems and complaints. EthicsPoint is not a substitute for, nor does it supersede, any existing reporting methods or protocols already in place at Northwestern. 

Any suspected problems or complaints reported via EthicsPoint will be reviewed in accordance with current University procedures, including those described in the Faculty, Staff, or Student Handbooks. 

Protection from Retaliation

Northwestern policy prohibits the taking of retaliatory action against anyone for reporting or inquiring about potential breaches of University policy or for seeking guidance on how to handle suspected breaches.
