Ethics and Compliance Office

Temple is committed to fostering a universitywide culture of integrity and ethical behavior. The university's Ethics and Compliance Office seeks to provide all members of the Temple community the resources and guidance needed to uphold the highest standards of integrity.

Open and honest communication is critical to our mission. It’s important for all Owls to understand the laws, rules, policies and guidance that apply to their conduct, and it is equally important to know that your concerns and questions will be answered openly and resolved fairly. 

We provide many resources for you to ask questions or raise concerns about ethical or compliance issues. In addition to these resources, we have launched the Temple University Ethics and Compliance Helpline. The helpline is a 24-hour, confidential communication channel hosted by EthicsPoint. It provides a resource for confidentially asking questions or submitting reports relating to violations of applicable law or university policies, standards or procedures. You can submit reports confidentially or anonymously online or by phone 24/7, 365 days a year.
