Reporting Ethical Concerns


The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) is committed to conducting its affairs in ways that promote mutual trust and public confidence.  All members of the UAB community are responsible for sustaining the highest ethical standards of excellence, integrity, honesty, and fairness and for integrating these values into teaching, research, patient care, business practices, and other services of the university.  Ethical conduct is a fundamental expectation for every UAB community member.


UAB expects individuals to report violations, provide information, or ask questions about any situation or conduct believed to be inconsistent with an applicable law, regulation, grant requirement, or university policy.  The Ethics Matters website provides information and instruction on reporting ethical concerns.  If you have questions about the information that appears there, please feel free to contact the University Compliance Office at (205) 996-6540.
