ANONYMOUS REPORTING

Golden Gate University (GGU) is committed to conducting its affairs ethically and in accordance with university policy and all applicable state and federal laws. To support this commitment, GGU has chosen EthicsPoint to provide the GGU community with a simple, anonymous method to confidentially make a suggestion; ask a question; describe a concern or report suspected violation of the GGU policies.

While the University supports the right of GGU community members to report incidents anonymously, in some instances the University's efforts to investigate, act effectively, or pursue disciplinary action may be hindered by the inability to contact the affected individuals, witnesses, and others involved. Please consider reporting incidents directly through the mechanisms described above. Though complete confidentiality cannot be guaranteed, the University will make every effort to protect privacy and preserve confidentiality.

 
HOW TO REPORT

To report an incident anonymously:

NOTIFICATIONS

TIMELY WARNINGS

Depending on the particular circumstances of the crime, especially in all situations that could pose an immediate threat to the community and individuals, the Business Services and Facilities Department will issue a campus-wide "timely warning." The warning will be issued through the university alert system to students, faculty and staff.

 

GGU-ALERT

Golden Gate University's Emergency Notification System informs members of the university community in the event of a disaster, emergency, or significant event that affects the campus-wide community. The system broadcasts messages (called GGU Alert messages) simultaneously to all registered users (students, faculty, staff and other authorized individuals) via a wide-variety of notification methods, including SMS text messages, phone calls, and e-mail.

ANNUAL SECURITY REPORT

Golden Gate University is committed to campus safety and security. In accordance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure Act of Campus Security and the Campus Crimes Statistics Act, we publish an annual report to keep the community properly informed about current crime statistics and other useful information.
