Help & Hotline

The Office of Professionalism and Ethics has established a Help & Hotline number that all USC faculty, staff and students can use to ask questions about applicable laws, regulations and university policies that may impact their job duties.

The Help & Hotline also can be used to report suspected violations of law confidentially and without fear of retribution. Anyone who has knowledge or a good faith belief that an applicable law, regulation or university policy has been violated should report such information to the Help and Hotline at (213) 740-2500. You may also report it HERE.
