Reporting Fiscal Misconduct
Western Kentucky University is an organization with strong values of responsibility and integrity. The University encourages its employees, students and the general public to promptly report suspected or known fiscal misconduct by WKU or by WKU personnel.
The University contracted with a third party service provider to operate an ethics and compliance hotline and web site. The University also established a Fiscal Misconduct policy, which explains how to report fiscal misconduct activities through the third party provider or directly to the Office of Internal Audit. A link to this policy can be found on this web page.
The third party provides a toll free telephone number and a web site if you wish to remain anonymous. Anyone can report fiscal misconduct activities using the following tools:
