Whistleblowing: Reporting Incidents of Fraud and Abuse

Niagara University has a responsibility for the stewardship of University resources and the private support that enables it to pursue its mission. The University is committed to compliance with the laws and regulations to which it is subject, as well as following high standards of business and personal ethics, honesty and integrity.  

The University continually audits its internal controls and operating procedures to detect, prevent, and deter improper activities. However, even the best systems of control cannot provide absolute safeguards against irregularities. Intentional and unintentional violations of laws, regulations, policies and procedures may occur and may constitute improper activities.   The University has adopted a Whistleblower Policy governing complaints submitted by University trustees, officers, employees, students, and volunteers who report violations or suspected violations of the law. 

Individuals wishing to report violations or suspected violations may do so by sending a notice in any of the following ways:

Additional methods to report violations or suspected violations:

No individual who in good faith reports a violation or suspected violation shall suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment or academic or educational consequence. However, persons who abuse the complaint process with frivolous or knowingly false reports may be subject to discipline.
