institution that exist in the U.S about risks or issues to do with fraud, illegal operations, threats to health, corruption and other issues that may be secretly be in existence in the institutions (Vandekerckhove, 2012). Even though whistleblowing is encouraged in organizations, employees in most instances fear to report any behaviors or activities that may be unethical as they fear the impact that may follow after such reports have been made given that such reports are in most cases made to the top management. Whistleblowing of university students who cheat is a good idea, and this is because cheating in the university is wrong doing given that when a student cheats in he or she is in a position that is "advantageous" than that of a person who does not cheat. By this, I mean that a person who cheats in the university can be unfairly be compared academically to a person who does not cheat on his or her tests and therefore a whistleblower should report people who cheat to enhance a fair competition in the University (Vandekerckhove, 2012).
