This confidential reporting system will instantly and discreetly forward the report to the appropriate persons at UHD and within the UH System.  The individual making the report will be provided with a confidential access number and asked to generate a personal password.  This access number and personal password will allow the individual to anonymously re-enter the site for updates at any time.  The individual will be able to both send and receive anonymous messages pertaining to their report, and if desired, participate in any follow up.

The issues that can be addressed via this confidential system fall into two categories:

 
  • Compliance and Regulation Violations
  • Fraud

MySafeCampus is:

  • Fast and Easy to Use
  • 24/7
  • Confidential

All contacts are confidential and individuals using the reporting system are assured anonymity when they request it.  UHD and the UH System reserve the right to act or not act on any information provided unless required to do so by law.  Neither UHD nor the UH System is required to disclose its response or actions pursuant to any information that may be provided or reported.  The intentional misreporting of information may be actionable and subject to criminal investigation.
