Legal policies and compliance

Report ethics violations

Portland Community College employees are considered public employees and are held to the same ethics laws as other Oregon public employees. See the PCC Ethics Guide or Oregon Government Ethics Commission website for more information about those ethics laws.

PCC has selected EthicsPoint, Inc. to provide a simple, risk-free way to anonymously and confidentially report criminal, unethical, or wasteful activities. Any person, including students, faculty, staff, suppliers, contractors, and members of the public at large, may submit a good faith report regarding ethical matters at PCC without fear of retaliation of any kind.

This service improves our ability to maintain an ethical culture and provides those reporting incidents with a secure and transparent process. All reports submitted through EthicsPoint will be given careful attention by PCC.

EthicsPoint is designed for financial, technology, and safety misdeeds only. Incidents such as assaults or sexual harassment should be reported to Human Resources.
