St. Bonaventure University requires all trustees, officers, employees, consultants and volunteers to observe high standards of business and personal ethics in the conduct of their duties and responsibilities. As representatives of the university, trustees, officers, employees, consultants and volunteers must practice honesty and integrity in fulfilling their responsibilities and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations.
Generally, this Whistleblower Policy is intended to supplement the existing university policies and procedures where the conduct at issue pertains to actions that cannot or are not addressable under existing university policies and procedures, including, but not limited to financial or ethical misconduct, conduct which violates the existing university policies and procedures, and conduct which involves retaliation for reporting violations of the existing university policies and procedures, including this Whistleblower Policy.
Therefore, the university has adopted the Whistleblower Policy to establish policies and procedures for the reporting of violations or suspected violations of laws or university policies, including procedures to preserve the confidentiality of reported information and the protection of trustees, officers, employees, consultants and volunteers who report such violations or suspected violations.
The policy provides an avenue for all trustees, officers, employees, consultants and volunteers to report any suspected or actual conduct contrary to these standards without the fear of intimidation, harassment, discrimination or retaliation.
