As employees, we are obligated to ask questions and raise concerns when compliance issues
arise in order to uphold the ethical standards of EDMC and its education systems.
We cannot keep silent about an issue or activity which we believe is a violation of our
Company’s values, principles, and ethics, nor should we assume that management already
knows about or is not concerned with a potential problem. Instead, we must speak up and do the right thing.
When you see or hear of a violation of the Code of Conduct, you should follow the subsequent escalation order:
- Speak with your supervisor. If you don’t feel comfortable sharing your concerns with your supervisor or are dissatisfied with his or her response, then you should…
- Speak with the next level of management or senior leader at your location, or
- Speak with your Human Resources representative, or
- Speak with the Employee Relations Team. These regionally based HR
professionals are charged with addressing employee relations matters,
including concerns about perceived discrimination, harassment, or retaliation.
If you are unsure who to contact, you may call the Employee Relations Team at 1-855-642-6980.

Confidentiality, Anonymity, and Non-Retaliation
EDMC and its education systems maintain confidentiality in all investigations
to the extent possible under the circumstances and in accordance with EDMC's legal obligations.
You may remain anonymous if you make a call to the Hotline. Additionally, no adverse employment
action may be taken against an employee for reporting a concern honestly and in good faith or participating in an investigation.
THE CORPORATE COMPLIANCE HOTLINE
The Corporate Compliance Hotline is a confidential, third party option for reporting suspected illegal and unethical activity. It is available to all EDMC employees, vendors, and investors to report compliance concerns 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
