The University publications, policies and guides included here present some of the most comprehensive policies and procedures that govern the Princeton research community, though this list is not exhaustive. The University recognizes that its responsibility and accountability extends to stakeholders outside of academic, including government authorities, sponsors, donors, and the general public, all of whom have vested trust and resources in Princeton’s research endeavors.
University Compliance Hotline
The University is deeply committed to the advancement, preservation and dissemination of knowledge and to the advancement and protection of the public interest and welfare. A number of special committees and processes are in place at Princeton to ensure that all research is conducted in an ethical and responsible manner in compliance with University policies and federal regulations.
As part of the University’s Institutional Compliance Program the University maintains a University Hotline for Princeton faculty, students and staff who wish to report concerns of any kind stemming from possible noncompliance with government or external agency regulations, related University policies, and errors or irregularities in Princeton's financial accounting practices or policies. Raising such concerns is a service to the University and does not jeopardize employment.
