Report Fraud

Sul Ross State University and Rio Grande College are committed to ensuring that our organizations maintain the highest standards of ethical conduct and integrity throughout all aspects of its operations. As public servants, System faculty and staff are guardians of the resources entrusted to it and have a responsibility to its students, parents, alumni, donors, and the citizens of Texas to ensure those resources are used efficiently and for their intended purpose.

ThecTexas State University System has established a reporting hotline through a private contractor, EthicsPoint, to provide a confidential avenue for reporting concerns about potential waste, fraud, and abuse of resources, the lack of compliance with laws and regulations, or violations of the System’s Code of Ethics. Reports can be submitted anonymously; reports filed through EthicsPoint are forwarded to and investigated by individuals who are independent of System management. EthicsPoint is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

EthicsPoint

EthicsPoint can be accessed via the following link: https://secure.ethicspoint.com/domain/media/en/gui/12867/index.html.

Reports may also be submitted via telephone by calling (toll free) 866-294-0987. Para hacer un reporte en Espanol, favor de llame 866-294-0987.

Retaliation against anyone who, in good faith, reports unlawful activity is prohibited under the Texas Whistleblower’s Act. If provided, the identities of individuals who file reports through EthicsPoint will be kept confidential to the extent allowed by investigative processes and the law.
