Augusta University celebrates

Values Week
Nov. 8-14, 2021

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. 8-14, 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.

Augusta University Values Week

Join us for activities that focus on our institutional core values of collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusion, leadership and integrity. Show your Jaguar spirit of giving this week! You’ll find drop-off locations around campus for Augusta University’s blanket drive at Reese and Greenblatt libraries.

Blanket Drive to benefit AU Health Center for Patients and Families

Being in the hospital at any time is difficult, but it is especially hard during the holiday season. Help spread comfort and joy to the inpatients at AU Health by purchasing blankets and donating them to the Center for Patients and Families. Blankets must be new (homemade items cannot be accepted) and can be any size, pattern or fabric. Drop-off locations can be found at Greenblatt Library on the Health Sciences Campus and Reese Library on the Summerville Campus.
