The OIC is responsible for collecting and investigating any reports of non-compliance with laws, regulations or Citadel policy, as well as allegations of fraud, waste or abuse of resources of the State of South Carolina by Citadel students, faculty or staff. There are several ways you can make a report:
Through Your Chain-of-Command
If you are a cadet, you can report to a member of your chain of command or a TAC officer.
If you are a non-cadet student, you can report to a faculty or staff member. If you are faculty or staff – whether full time, part time, permanent or temporary – you can report to a supervisor or manager. If, however, you feel uncomfortable doing so, you can utilize one of the following methods below.
It is the policy of the Office of Institutional Compliance to hold your report in the strictest confidence, if you so choose. If, however, you are still concerned about confidentiality, please use the EthicsPoint system outlined below. Please see the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
Using the EthicsPoint systems ensures that you can make a report anonymously, if you so choose. EthicsPoint is a third-party vendor that is an industry leader in compliance and ethics-related reporting, and is available 24/7/365. Please see the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
The Office of Institutional Compliance is the repository for all college-wide Citadel Policies. The OIC, in conjunction with various departments on campus, began an overhaul of all Citadel policies to ensure that all College-wide policies are up-to-date, approved by the proper authority, and properly posted. The OIC can help you research, format, update and post your individual departmental policies as well. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and see how we can help!
The Office of Institutional Compliance, in conjunction with the Human Resources Department, provides training on a variety of topics, including:
