It takes courage to come forward.  Retaliation for reporting concerns in good faith is strictly prohibited. 

To report a suspected crime, contact the Duke Campus Police:

  • Emergency: 911 
  • Non-Emergency: (919) 684-2444

If you witness or are asked to participate in actions that are not consistent with our values, tell someone.  Ask your supervisor, department head, dean, an advisor, a colleague or a friend for advice.

If you prefer, you can contact 800.826.8109 to discuss your question or report your concern.  The toll-free number is a confidential, and anonymous if you choose, service provided 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.  A third-party administers this service and refers the information to the appropriate audit or compliance office for follow-up action.

Duke takes all reported concerns seriously and safeguards the identities of those providing information.  Duke commits to conducting a fair and expeditious inquiry and to use any information to correct errors, make improvements, and ensure accountability.  Should illegal activity be suspected or confirmed, the university has a duty to report those facts to the appropriate authorities.
