MIT Reporting Hotline

March 18, 2018

Is a situation in your office making you uncomfortable? Do you think it might violate MIT policy? Unsure where to report this?

MIT has an anonymous reporting hotline for complaints about wrongdoing and violations of Institute policy. The reporting system is hosted and maintained by a third-party vendor called Ethicspoint.

Anyone may use the hotline to report a concern about suspected wrongdoing in the MIT community. The most common categories for hotline reports are the following:

  • Conflicts of Interest
  • Environmental Health & Safety
  • Financial
  • Human Resources (including discrimination and harassment)
  • Information Technology
  • Research
  • Risk and Safety
  • Violations of Law, Contract, or MIT Policy

Please note that this is not an emergency line. If you have an emergency, please dial 617-253-1212 or 100 from a campus phone. If you are off campus, please dial 911.

MIT has a strong non-retaliation policy that applies to anyone who raises a concern in good faith through the anonymous reporting hotline.
