Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity Policy

Read more about Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity Policy

Princeton University is committed to conducting its academic and administrative responsibilities in an ethical and lawful manner and in accordance with applicable laws, regulations and University policy. The University depends on its faculty, academic professionals and staff to share in this responsibility through the timely reporting of suspected illegal activity. Members of the University community who commit illegal activity are subject to disciplinary action, up to and including termination of employment and/or criminal prosecution. The University reserves the right to refer for prosecution activity of any kind for any reason.

Reporting obligations under the Reporting Potentially Illegal Activity Policy and the University's Sex Discrimination and Sexual Misconduct Policy are described in a brief training video.  The video is intended to help faculty and staff understand their reporting responsibilities, including what to report, how to report, and to whom.  These policies apply both to on- and off-campus Princeton-related activities, including off-campus conferences and research sites, as well as study abroad programs.
