Celebrating our Ethical Culture

The University System of Georgia (USG) and Valdosta State University are committed to establishing and maintaining an ethical culture throughout all aspects of our community. Ethics Awareness week serves as a reminder of our shared commitment to ethical values and expectations and how we incorporate ethical decision-making in all we do. 

To honor our ethical culture and celebrate the hard work of our faculty, staff and students, VSU will host its annual Ethics Awareness Week, Nov. 8-14, 2021.

Events will be delivered electronically, economically and in alignment with public health guidance. Throughout the week, these activities and events will bring awareness to ethics, reinforce a culture that recognizes the hard work of all employees, and promote the shared values of integrity, excellence, accountability and respect among our campus community.
