Values Week 2021 makes impact on campus community

From Nov. 8-14, Augusta University celebrated its fourth annual Values Week with a series of events and programs.

Over 17 events were held specifically for or in relation to Values Week, which celebrates the university’s values of collegiality, compassion, excellence, inclusivity, integrity and leadership. Events also nodded to the additional shared university system values of accountability and respect.

These events saw approximately 2,000 participants – and that’s a shy estimate, according to the Office of Compliance, Ethics and Risk Management.

Attorney Brittney Alls, director of ethics and compliance, managed the Values Week initiative for her second time this year. She is proud of this year’s effort.

“Values are what make us who we are. They serve as our navigation system and guide our choices. As a university, academic medical facility, and health system, we have a duty to our students, patients, employees, and to the community to live our values,” she said.

“After a year of mostly virtual events, stakeholders across the enterprise stepped up and provided several opportunities for our community to celebrate our institutional values. We had a wide range of topics, a large selection of both in person and virtual events, a strong showing from executive leadership, and engagement from the university and the health system.”
