Ethics Awareness Week
November 9 - 15, 2020

“Our culture is very important to the success of not only our institutions, but our employees, students, communities and ultimately how Georgia is educated, which makes it very important to me, and hopefully to all of you as leaders for the USG.”
                                                                     Chancellor Steve Wrigley, University System of Georgia


The week of November 9 – 15, 2020 has been designated “Ethics Awareness Week” and in support of this effort, the University System of Georgia (USG) institutions, including Albany State University (ASU) will participate under the theme, “Celebrating our Ethical Culture”.  This week will be highlighted with activities to bring awareness, promote and maintain a more ethical culture at all USG institutions.

The Office of Internal Audits will provide a number of activities during the week to help bring awareness to prevent unethical behavior and promote shared values of integrity, respect, excellence, accountability and responsibility.

“INTEGRITY, the choice between what’s convenient and what’s right.”
