Social media allows individuals to create and participate in online communities. These
communities grant opportunities for individuals to share information, ideas, stories,
and engaging content such as photos and videos.
As an institution, Augusta University understands that social media plays a large
role in the lives of our students, alumni, faculty and staff. Our institutional values encourage members of the Augusta University family to interact with one another across
platforms. Social media platforms are easy-access, low-cost, large-audience communication
tools, that we as a university use to enrich our environment and further discovery.
Fun, witty, youthful, enthusiastic, and authentic.
In six words, it's who we are.
We are achievement-oriented but never boastful. We are friendly and open-minded. We
are smart but not arrogant. We have a sense of humor and use it tactfully. We communicate
our messages with a positive attitude. We are genuine, honest and transparent with
the information we share. We love learning about our community, their opinions and
experiences. We ask questions and aren't afraid of feedback. We are unique. We vary
our voice and tone to each audience with our values in mind.
The Division of Communications and Marketing manages accounts affiliated with Augusta University, Augusta University Health, the
Augusta University Alumni Association and the Children's Hospital of Georgia.

#AUGValuesWeek - Meet Melinda McKew!
Soon-to-be medical student Melinda is no stranger to Augusta University. She graduated in 2011 as one of the five valedictorians with a Bachelor of Arts in English and a minor in Women's Studies. She is now on the path to getting her medical degree and is completing her degree in cellular and molecular biology this semester. For her, excellence is represented both in academics, but also so much more. “Excellence encompasses so much more than academics. I’m really proud that professors and others around me think of me in that way. I would classify someone as excellent as someone who is fundamentally a good human. Someone who is trying to do well, not just in their career, but personally.” Read more about Melinda and how she reflects the core institutional value of excellence by clicking the link in our bio. #AUGValuesWeek

This value is one Jasmine represents and is also a value she found most important throughout her college career. “Every single teacher I’ve had in the program has shown compassion.
