Michigan State University Misconduct Hotline

Michigan State University has implemented a telephone hotline including a web reporting feature to help maintain adherence to ethical practices. The purpose of the hotline is to provide an anonymous method to report known or suspected misconduct for Michigan State University. Misconduct related to the following areas can be reported through the hotline: fiscal, conflicts of interest, employment, medical/HIPAA, research, safety, athletics, discrimination/harassment, privacy, retaliation, and any other issue that does not fit another category.

The University contracted with The Network, Inc. to provide the misconduct hotline service on a 24 hours a day, 365 days a year basis. The hotline is staffed by The Network, Inc. with specially trained personnel. University employees do not answer calls. When someone calls the hotline, they will be asked to describe the suspected problem in as much detail as possible. They may remain anonymous. Upon completion of the call, the interviewer will promptly relay the information to the University for investigation. Alternatively, the caller can contact the Director of Internal Audit via email at or directly at (517) 355-5036. Separately, if preferred, an individual can use the web reporting feature of The Network Inc. by using the link below. The reporting feature of this website allows for anonymous entries.

The University prohibits retaliation against employees who make reports, in good faith, of known or suspected misconduct.
