Augusta University celebrates

Values Week
Nov. 6-12, 2023

For a designated week each fall, Augusta University joins with the entire University System of Georgia to remind ourselves of our commitment to foster an ethical culture and to highlight our shared institutional values.

We share the USG’s commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards of conduct in pursuit of its mission to create a more educated Georgia. As Georgia’s public academic medical center, we also commit to the highest ethical standards in our delivery of health care and health care education to our patients and students.

From Nov. 6-12, Augusta University will be "Celebrating our Values" and join the other 25 USG institutions in promoting activities related to shared core system values of integrity, excellence, accountability and respect.
