Whistleblower Policy

Each semester, the University seeks to remind all members of the campus community of their responsibility in maintaining an ethical culture at DeSales and the communication procedures to report specific issues of concern.

Please read the DeSales University Communication Procedures for matters involving questionable accounting, internal controls, auditing, reports of financial fraud or unethical behavior not consonant with the principles of the Philosophy and Mission of the University.  Complaints should immediately be reported through the channels outlined within the policy.  All reported issues will be properly investigated and appropriately resolved.

Read the Whistleblower Policy in MyDSU. (You’ll need to log in to view this document in MyDSU. However, it is also available to the general public on the DeSales website.)

Do not use this procedure to report an emergency event or immediate safety risk occurring at the University.  Please report any type of suspicious behavior deemed to be considered a risk to the University community immediately through the University Police, on campus by dialing extension 1250 or off-campus 9-1-1.

Any questions on the Whistleblower policy should be addressed to Peter Rautzhan, Associate Vice President for Administration and Planning, at extension 1332 or peter.rautzhan@desales.edu
