Compliance and Ethics Policies & Procedures

Compliance and Ethics

Creighton University is committed to advancing the highest standards of ethics, integrity, and honesty, and ensuring compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies.  The Office of the General Counsel coordinates  compliance efforts  across the University and supports those offices that provide expertise, resources, policies, procedures and training related to the numerous laws and regulations that apply to the broad activities performed at Creighton.

Creighton University's written standards and policies contain general guidelines for conducting University business in accordance with high ethical standards. We are committed to an environment where open, honest communications are the expectation, not the exception. We want you to feel comfortable in approaching your supervisor or management in instances where you believe violations of law, policies or standards have occurred.

Creighton University has established a variety of help lines and related resources to report incidents and address questions in matters concerning campus and/or student safety, student complaints, sexual violence, harassment and discrimination, compliance, emergency and crisis situations, and the Tell Someone program to name a few. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with these resources. This site is designed to provide easy access to the most commonly referenced compliance areas across the Creighton community.

In an effort to enhance our existing assistance and reporting mechanisms, we have selected NAVEX Global's EthicsPoint third-party hotline service to provide a simple way to report activities, anonymously if you prefer, that may involve serious misconduct, violations of laws and regulations, or Creighton University policy.

In situations where you prefer to place such a report in confidence, you can file a report using a web intake form or via a dedicated telephone hotline by dialing 855-256-0478. The web intake form can be found at EthicsPoint.

We believe the implementation of a third-party hotline service at Creighton University further demonstrates our commitment to integrity, compliance and ethical conduct.  Please contact us for assistance with any compliance or ethical conduct issues.

We appreciate your commitment and support of our compliance and ethics efforts!
