FAU Launches Ethics Hotline

At FAU our core values are not simply words written in an employee manual or on a website page. They are something that we all must live by each day while striving to make them a cornerstone of our university culture.

Effective ethics is a team effort involving the participation and support of every member of the FAU community. We will not tolerate wrongdoing or impropriety and will take appropriate measures and act quickly in addressing issues or infractions, including without limitation those included within our Standards of Conduct.  It is everyone’s responsibility if you See Something, Say Something.

FAU has engaged Lighthouse Services, Inc. to provide the FAU community access to an ethics hotline for reporting possible violations. The purpose of this service is to ensure that anyone wishing to submit a report can do so anonymously and without fear of retribution.

Regular business concerns should be directed to the employee’s supervisor and/or other offices or personnel, as applicable, many of which may be found at www.fau.edu/report.  All are encouraged to use the hotline service in cases where anonymity is desired.

Hotline reports may cover but are not limited to the following topics:

  • Accounting, Auditing, and Financial Controls
  • Ethics
  • Fraud
  • Information Technology
  • Privacy
  • Research
  • Theft
  • Waste/Abuse

Lighthouse Services provides a toll-free number along with several other reporting methods, all of which are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Toll-Free Telephone: 855-222-0224

More than 2,200 students and 900 college and university faculty and administrators in the United States are awarded Fulbright awards annually.

The Fulbright Program is considered one of the most prestigious educational exchange programs in the country. This program was created to increase mutual understanding between people of the U.S. and people around the world.

FAU Alert Test – October 5

Florida Atlantic University will test all components of the FAU Alert System on Tuesday, October 5.

At approximately 10:00 a.m., the outdoor warning sirens on the Boca Raton, Jupiter and Harbor Branch campuses will be activated. During this test, a loud siren sound and a spoken message will be heard across the campuses as well as in nearby neighborhoods and business areas. FAU apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause and thanks its campus neighbors in advance for understanding the importance of this testing process to both the University and the community at large.

Additionally, FAU’s University-wide email, text message alert, telephone alert, web alert, emergency hotlines, digital signage, desktop alerts and social media will be tested during the same time.

Users of the FAU Owl Ready App (www.fau.edu/emergency/owlready.php) will also receive alerts.

Tests of the FAU Alert System will occur at least two times a year.

The FAU Alert System is designed to play a key role in keeping FAU’s students, faculty, staff and campus visitors safe during emergency situations. The University thanks everyone affected by these tests for showing patience and cooperation as they are carried out.

For more information on FAU Alert, please visit the Department of Emergency Management’s website at www.fau.edu/emergency.

Be Prepared, Be Safe, Be Owl Ready!
