Please note, there are limitations to anonymous reporting. There are situations where anonymous reports can provide enough information to investigate (i.e. text messages, emails, eye witnesses, etc.), but often there is not enough information included in an anonymous concern to investigate.

For anonymous reporting, you may fill out the following online complaint forms:

UM Ethics, Integrity & Compliance:

  • Use this Compliance Online Reporting to report a concern. Please note that in order for them to investigate, you have to provide enough information. You will receive a confirmation number that you can use to go back into the system and check for responses or questions from the investigator. It’s important that you:
    • Hold onto the confirmation number (don’t lose it) 
    • Hold onto the link, and 
    • Check for updates. 
  • You can also add to your original message if you think of another detail later, or something related happens after you’ve sent the report. There’s an option for the investigator to request an anonymous chat session to clarify details of your report.
  • Phone: (866) 990-0111
  • Reports of sexual or gender based misconduct can be reported anonymously through U-M’s 24/7 compliance hotline.
    • Please note that individuals are able to report by identifying themselves or anonymously via the compliance hotline.

    • If you have any questions about the limitations of anonymous reporting, please contact ECRT directly.
