Research Compliance Hotline

At Suffolk University, we're committed to ensuring the ethical and responsible conduct of research. Our toll-free Research Compliance Hotline is designed to answer questions you may have about your rights as a research participant.

Please call the hotline at 888-634-4387.

You can also call to express concerns about research possibly not being conducted in accordance with University policies, external sponsor requirements, or federal and state regulations.Such research activities might include:

  • Research misconduct
  • Violation of human subjects' protections
  • A breach of confidentiality related to research data or protected health information
  • Research-related conflicts of interest

Individuals may report any suspected violation anonymously. You can leave a message on the hotline's voicemail or choose to speak directly to a member of the Research Compliance staff during regular office hours. Every report will be acted on in a confidential manner, with notification to other appropriate individuals made on a need-to-know basis. If you desire anonymity, we will protect to the extent possible by law and by University regulations. You can also email your concerns to compliancehotline@suffolk.edu.
