EthicsPoint Reporting System
The American University in Cairo (AUC) values responsibility and integrity, and encourages the community to report any real, or potential violation of AUC’s policies. To facilitate confidential reporting of any violations, we have engaged an independent third-party provider, NAVEX Global. Their system, the EthicsPoint Reporting System, is a standard tool used by universities in the United States and is similar to the Advocate system, which AUC already uses for our students. This confidential and impartial web-based system directs the reports to the authorized AUC official to handle the issue, and tracks progress to ensure timely resolution.
EthicsPoint forwards the information you provide on a confidential and anonymous basis, if you so choose when submitting your report. EthicsPoint guarantees documentation of complaints or any reported comments, as well as the timeliness and completeness of the Administration’s response.
According to AUC’s Policy on Reporting Unethical or Illegal Conduct, retaliation against an individual who reports conduct that violates or suspects that it violates AUC’s policies is strictly prohibited. Retaliation as a response to a good faith report, whether determined to be founded or unfounded, shall not be tolerated.
