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. 7-13, 2022.

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.
