During the fourth annual Values Week from Nov. 8-14, Augusta University is celebrating its six core values — collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusivity, integrity and leadership — with a week of events.
This Values Week celebration complements the University System of Georgia’s Ethics Awareness Week.
In addition to the week’s events, the Title IX office is hosting a blanket drive to benefit the Center for Patients and Families at Augusta University Health. New, store-bought blankets can be dropped off at the Greenblatt or Reese libraries Nov. 8-19.
