Report a Concern

⴫ý is committed to making sure you, as a member of the Owl family, are part of an inclusive and caring community where concerns are addressed fairly and collegially. This concern page is your place to submit a report or appeal about various concerns. 

KSU Community Members (Students, Faculty, Staff, and other KSU Community Members) are encouraged to always first begin with informal resolution directly with the individual and/or office with whom they have a grievance. Formal written complaints can be submitted online through this website when a resolution cannot be informally reached. The more information that you can provide, the better we can serve you.

Report Discrimination

⴫ý is committed to maintaining a fair and respectful living, working, and studying environment. If you believe you have observed or been the subject of discrimination, please provide an account of the incident here.

When submitting a report related to one or more of the areas below, please click on the “Report Discrimination Incident” button:

Compliance and Ethics Reporting Hotline

⴫ý recognizes that an ethical, efficient, and effective work environment is essential to our continuing to successfully accomplish our mission. As a result, we have always placed a high priority on assuring that each member of our university community has the opportunity and means to convey any matter that could compromise that environment. Reporting through your supervisory chain frequently produces the most thorough and timely resolution of a matter and is encouraged. However, other reporting avenues, such as the University Police, Human Resources, and Internal Audit, have been and continue to be readily available.

Of special concern are fraud, waste, and abuse as well as harassment of any kind, given that they so directly impact our stewardship responsibilities and the well-being of individuals within our campus community. Yet, we would encourage you to report any other significant issue as well through any of the methods available to you.

⴫ý has a responsibility to conduct business ethically and legally, but we need your help to reach that goal. By “doing what’s right” every day, you’ll help us build a reputation for excellence and integrity.

You can report your concerns securely and anonymously to our external hotline provider, NAVEX Global. This service is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and allows you to voice your concerns, and to remain anonymous if you prefer.
