MacEwan University provides a number of human-rights related resources to students, staff and faculty.

Confidence Line

If you have experienced or witnessed unwanted, uncomfortable or unethical behaviour, either as an employee or as a student, you can report your concerns to the Confidence Line. We will listen to you, protect your anonymity and direct you to the MacEwan service that can help you best.

How it Works

If you call the Confidence Line number, an operator will take down the details of your report. If you choose to file the report online, you will enter the details yourself, generating a case file.

After creating a report, whether online or over the phone, you may be directed to resources specific to the type of report you’re filing. For example, an academic complaint may be referred to the academic integrity officer or the dean. An assault will be directed to MacEwan Security Services or police.

The report will be shared with appropriate staff at the university, and if you request to remain anonymous your identity will be kept confidential. University staff may follow up by commenting on your online case file, avoiding the need for direct contact if you wish to remain anonymous.

When to use the Confidence Line

Any situation that concerns you warrants a call to Confidence Line. It's also meant to provide some direction if you don't know if the situation is something you should report or not.

Confidence Line can point you to the proper resources and initiate follow-up from the university.

Visit the Confidence Line website or call the toll-free number to submit a report.
