At Augusta University, we honor our values of compassion, excellence, inclusivity, integrity, and leadership. We uphold these values—and their foundational principles like respect and social responsibility—by living them in the small actions we take in our day-to-day lives.
Living these values every day is what it means to be a Jaguar.
The What It Means campaign spotlights how our students live out the Augusta University values, and showcases the everyday ways they embody what it means to be a part of JagNation.
This campaign is led by both undergraduate SGA and graduate SGA.

"To me, inclusivity goes beyond simply having a proportional representation of the population in our student body. It means making sure all individuals feel comfortable being themselves and are respected so that they may strive for academic excellence. It means treating all peers with kindness, and making everyone feel as though their voices are heard."

"Leadership means listening to others' concerns then voicing them when they cannot. It also means to influence people to do the very best that they can."

"To be a Jaguar means to be a hard worker, one who strives to be the best version of themselves that they can be."
