RUSO Tip Line, powered by EthicsPoint

Continuing UCO's effort to provide a safe, ethical, and positive work and learning environment, Central now offers a new choice to report potential concerns. Concerns may be submitted anonymously through the RUSO Tip Line, set up through the Regional University System of Oklahoma (RUSO). The RUSO Tip Line is powered by EthicsPoint, a web-based, commercial platform used by industry and higher education to handle such concerns. You are also encouraged to continue communicating any concerns directly to your supervisor, Human Resources, or the appropriate campus offices whenever possible.
