MIT has established an anonymous reporting hotline for whistleblower or other complaints about suspected wrongdoing, violations of Institute policy, or troubling practices on campus. The reporting system is hosted and maintained by a third-party vendor called Ethicspoint.
There are many other ways to report issues around the Institute. In many cases, MIT is better able to respond to complaints that are not anonymous.
Anyone may use the hotline to report a concern about suspected wrongdoing or troubling practices in the MIT community. The most common categories for hotline reports are the following:
- COVID-19 public health, safety, and policy concerns*
- Conflicts of Interest
- Environmental Health & Safety
- Human Resources (including discrimination and harassment)
- Information Technology
- Risk and Safety
- Violations of Law, Contract, or MIT Policy
*To report a COVID-19 public health, safety, or policy concern about student behavior, use this form here, which is intended for Institute community members to share concerns about students not following Covid-19 policy expectations. Anonymous reports can sometimes limit the ability of Institute administrators to respond due to the inability to confirm or verify the information presented without attribution. If you wish to file an anonymous report, you may still use MIT's anonymous hotline.
This is not an emergency line. If you have an emergency, please dial 617-253-1212 or 100 from a campus phone. If you are off campus, please dial 911.
MIT has a strong non-retaliation policy that applies to anyone who raises a concern in good faith through the anonymous, whistleblower reporting hotline. For questions about the hotline or related material on this website, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Kate Miller, Institute Compliance Officer.
