This website provides important information for the SMU community about the Whistleblowing policy (“WB policy”). The policy provides guidelines on how to report, what to report and who to report to when an improper activity is noted, and the protection given to the person who made the report in good faith and in accordance with the WB policy.

However, a Whistleblower may choose to remain anonymous.
