This fall, Augusta University will take several strides to recommit to the institutional values and foster an ethical organizational culture.
Between Oct. 15 and Nov. 15, Augusta University will conduct its annual compliance training. This online training is mandatory for all Augusta University and AU Health faculty and staff.
Later, from Nov. 8 to Nov. 12, the university will celebrate Values Week, marking another opportunity for Jaguar Nation to focus on the importance of ethical decision-making in protecting and advancing public trust.
The Values Week celebration complements the University System of Georgia’s enterprise-wide Ethics Awareness Week.
This fall also marks another ethics milestone: the first issue of the Compliance, Ethics and Risk Management newsletter, The Navigator. The aim of this quarterly publication is to increase awareness and understanding of the role the Office of Compliance, Ethics and Risk Management plays in ensuring a safe, ethical and inclusive environment for everyone in the university community.
“We hope this newsletter will be a vehicle for providing useful and relevant information on issues pertaining to AU compliance and ethics,” said Barry Grosse, chief compliance officer and vice president for Audit, Compliance, Ethics and Risk Management.
“More importantly, we look forward to sharing the important stories about AU students and staff who exemplify our ethics and values daily through their work, interactions and communication with people both inside and outside our institution.”
Information about annual compliance training, Values Week and The Navigator newsletter is forthcoming. Email Compliance, Ethics and Risk Management to learn more.
