Safe disclosure reporting at MacEwan University

Introduction

ConfidenceLine has been selected by MacEwan University as its authorized external service provider for the purpose of reporting unethical or improper conduct or any other sensitive issue or concern involving MacEwan University. This service is open to all students, staff, faculty, Board members, and persons external to MacEwan University.

MacEwan University has policy documents in place which relate to behavioural expectations, conduct, and reporting options and associated processes in order to provide a safe and supportive work and learning environment for all members of the University community.
