Welcome to the UVM Unified Campus Reporting Portal. In the event of an emergency or any serious concern for safety please call 911 immediately.  If on campus, contact Police Services at 802-656-3473.

Each member of the UVM community has a shared responsibility to maintain a safe and healthy campus. Early recognition and intervention when there are concerns, large or small, is essential.  Campus safety is enhanced when community members identify and report issues of all types, including behavior of concern, in a caring and timely manner.

Early identification of concerns enables early intervention to more effectively address issues, including risks and behaviors that are threatening or significantly disruptive to the learning, living, and working environment.

Concerns can come in a number of forms, on a number of topics, ranging from emergent issues - which should be reported via 911 immediately - to a number of other categories listed below. Some concerns may be operational, such as suggested process improvements to the way the university functions. Every member of the UVM community is encouraged to make constructive suggestions for operational innovation.

Our goal is to encourage reports of concerns to improve operations and to intervene swiftly, ensuring accountability and enabling the ability for early intervention at the lowest possible level to repair and prevent further concerns/harms.  You may or may not know what category a report might fall into.  That is ok.  If you do not know how to categorize a report, simply choose the "I don't know/Other" selection below.

For additional details about reporting threats and concerning behavior please visit our threat recognition and reporting page.

Compliance & Ethics Report

One element of an effective compliance program is to have and publicize a system, which includes an anonymous reporting mechanism, whereby employees may report or seek guidance regarding compliance with regulatory requirements, laws, policies, and procedures, without fear of retaliation. At UVM, employees (faculty, staff, administrators, temp employees, and graduate students) are able to report violations to UVM’s Code of Conduct and Ethical Standards, UVM Policies or Procedures, as well as any other compliance concerns through the Ethics and Compliance Reporting & HelpLine (the HelpLine). The HelpLine portal identifies a number of types of issues that may be reported. You may want to visit UVM’s Institutional Policies webpage and review applicable policies prior to reporting.

The HelpLine portal identifies a number of types of issues that may be reported including, but not limited to the following:
1. Financial misconduct including fraud, bribery, theft, embezzlement, bribery and kickbacks.
2. Non-compliance with laws, rules, and regulations.
3. Employee issues such as discrimination, harassment, nepotism, retaliation, unfair labor practices, and unprofessional behavior.
4. Non-emergent safety concerns such as workplace violence, unsafe workplace, and laboratory safety.
5. Conflicts of interest and conflicts of commitment.
6. Privacy and information security concerns such as unauthorized access to, or use, and disclosure of personally identifiable, confidential, or regulated information or misuse of UVM’s information systems.
7. Research issues such as research misconduct, misuse or personal use of research funding or facilities, and treatment of animals.
8. Unauthorized or illegal use of UVM’s intellectual property such as copyrights, patents, and trade secrets.

Tips for faculty and staff regarding general concerns or issues and disruptions

Our core mission is to create new knowledge and to innovate. This core tenet applies to our operational philosophy through Our Common Ground Values. Responding to internal concerns in a timely and effective way is essential to creating a healthy and responsive place to work, live, and learn. Additionally, a timely and effective response can help minimize distractions and disruptions that can be a side effect of growing concerns about operational issues.

Any member of the faculty or staff may become aware of complaints or concerns. If that occurs it is important to:

• Immediately report any safety or security concerns to campus police or as directed by the details on this reporting portal.
• If operational in nature, swiftly acknowledge the concern and inform the concerned party or parties that you will bring their concern forward. Be sure to gather as much information about the concern as possible.
• Immediately notify the leadership team in the affected department or division of the concern and who to direct follow-up outreach to.
o Forward any communication regarding the issue for review.
• If unit leaders are approached about concerns, listen and guide students or employees to constructive avenues to bring their concerns forward, including offering to facilitate bringing the concerns forward. Please do not sign documents related to concerns.  If asked to do so, please ask for a copy to review.
• Unit leaders should inform their Division Leader of any information related to potential campus disruption, such as protests/demonstrations or any activity that may interrupt operations.

If a disruption occurs in a classroom or work location, consider the following:
• Notify police services immediately if there is a safety concern.
• Re-direct - “We are well off course for today, let’s bring it back to the original question . . .” “We are a little far afield, let’s move on to . . .”
• Reiterate (Warn) – “Ok, student, that is enough on that issue for today. You are interrupting in a way that is not acceptable. Please stop or I must ask you to leave for today.”
• Remove – “You are being disruptive. Please leave so we may continue our discussion.” (Schedule office hour appointment to discuss re-entry and set clear expectation)
• Recess – “I have asked you to stop and then to leave. You continue to persist. We will pick it up here next time. Class is dismissed for today.” (Schedule office hour appointment to discuss with the student)
• Document Disruption and Response – Share this in writing with the student (e.g. send follow up email to office meeting).
• Engage Support – Consult with Student Services and consider: Having the Chair or Associate Dean meet with the student to reinforce expectations; Submitting a CARE Form and requesting intervention assistance; Engaging Academic Dean if other interventions have failed. If appropriate, the Dean can consider an alternative path to course completion where a student’s presence in class is no longer tenable. *Please consult with General Counsel’s Office; Refer for Discipline – If conduct has necessitated removal or recess, submit an incident report to the Center for Student Conduct.             

• Note: Absent a decision to suspend or dismiss a student, CSC cannot remove a student from class.

For additional detail please refer to the policies on Free Expression & Campus Disruption as well as Campus Speakers.

Employee Rights in Reporting Workplace Hazards and Concerns

If an employee believes a hazard exists, that employee should report the hazard to their direct supervisor. If no action is taken to correct the situation, the employee should notify Risk Management directly at risk.management@uvm.edu or (802) 656-3242. An employee has the right to file a complaint and request a VOSHA inspection if they believe there is a serious hazard or their employer is not following OSHA standards; however, the employee should make a ‘good-faith effort’ to have the hazards corrected by a supervisor or other UVM entity first. Risk Management personnel are available to help resolve safety problems and to interpret VOSHA regulations for all departments. Complaints from workers or their representatives are taken seriously by VOSHA and will keep the information confidential and can be filed at VOSHA's website.

In case of an impending VOSHA inspection, an employee may accompany the VOSHA compliance officer during the inspection. Risk Management personnel should also accompany the inspector.

An employee may also file a complaint with VOSHA if s/he believes s/he has been discriminated against because of exercising any of these rights.

These and other stipulations are contained in the VOSHA regulations, copies of which can be obtained through the Department of Risk Management or at OSHA's website.
