Accountability & Integrity
Western Oregon University is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. Our Code of Business Conduct and Ethics contains general guidelines for conducting business with the highest standards of ethics.
Western Oregon University is 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 policies or standards have occurred.
If you are aware of fraud, waste, or abuse occurring within Western Oregon University, we want to know about it. You can report concerns to campus management or through the Western Oregon University hotline. The hotline is a confidential and anonymous reporting system operated by an independent, third-party vendor.
