Campus Conduct Hotline

The Campus Conduct Hotline© is a confidential, independent risk-management service that gives students and employees a simple, anonymous way to alert administrators of unsafe or unethical behavior before it spirals out of control. The Campus Conduct Hotline© is available around the clock, seven days a week.

To use this service: 

  • Dial toll-free 866-943-5787
  • Your call will be greeted promptly and courteously by a person who makes certain you understand the
  • Campus Conduct Hotline© program and how it functions. 
  • At the beginning of the interview, you will receive a five digit case number that you should use to check back for updates and/or requests for additional information. Be sure to write this number down and keep it in a safe place. 
  • You will then be interviewed about your question or concern. Your interview will not be recorded. Instead, the interviewer will be typing notes of your conversation. Whether or not you choose to provide your name is completely up to you. 
  • Within one business day of your call, a summary of the interview will be forwarded to the college. Our goal will be to have a basic response back to you in five business days. 
  • To receive your response, you will need to call back and provide the five digit case number that has been assigned to you. You will be able to continue checking back for updates until your case is closed.

Because of the built-in confidentiality, it is important that you try to be as specific as possible about the information you provide. At no time is any caller required to identify him or herself and all information provided can be completely confidential and anonymous.

If you have any questions regarding the Hotline, contact the Director of Human Resources at 304-637-1344.

Sick Leave Bank

This benefit provides full-time employees with a short-term disability plan. The College’s long-term disability plan can be accessed after six months of disability, but the College has no short term disability plan in place. The sick leave bank (once accrued sick leave time is exhausted) can help cover immediate loss of income if an employee must be absent from work due to non-work-related illness or injury. All full-time employees are eligible for membership on a voluntary basis. 

For more information or to enroll in the Sick Leave Bank contact the Director of Human Resources.
