Ethics Awareness Week

It's Up To All of Us to Create A More Ethical Culture
The theme for Ethics Awareness Week is Celebrating our Ethical Culture. Albany State University along with the other 25 USG institutions and the University System Office, are hosting activities to bring awareness to the importance of an ethical culture. We share in our Core Values of Integrity, Excellence, Accountability and Respect.
The USG mission demands integrity, good judgment and dedication to public service from all members of the USG Community. 

A Message From President Fedrick
Dear ASU Faculty, Staff, and Students,
As a proud member institution of the University System of Georgia, it is imperative that we uphold the USG’s mission of integrity, good judgment, and dedication to public service from all members of the USG Community.  As a proud member, we actively engage in the annual Ethics Awareness Week. The 2022 theme is, “SPIRIT of USG,” committed to Stewardship. Prevention. Integrity. Responsibility. Inspiration. and Trust. 
This year’s recognition and week-long series of activities will occur November 7-13. Chancellor Sonny Perdue and Dan Cathy of Chick-fil-A will kick off the week-long series with a live chat scheduled for November 7 at 11 a.m. I encourage each of you to join by accessing the JOIN LIVE link.  
On November 10 at 11 a.m., USG’S Ethics and Compliance Best Practices panel will convene to discuss the topic; Steering an Ethical Culture through Rapid Change and the Great Resignation. I encourage you to engage in the anticipated and timely discussion by registering here.
Lastly, ASU colleagues, Joel Wright, Chief Legal Officer, Ola Terrell Jordan, Chief Human Resource Officer, and Chief Anita Allen recently met to discuss ethical best practices within and beyond the workplace. The discussions will be shared through our various University Communications channels and will also air on ASU TV Channel 19 and WASU-FM 92.7.  
Reminder communications with details about each of the SPIRIT of USG Ethics Awareness Week events will be shared throughout next week. To learn more about the purpose of Ethics Awareness Week, be sure to watch the USG 2022 EAW Kickoff Video.
I look forward to your participation, support, and continued commitment to ensuring Albany State University maintains and upholds all aspects of an ethical culture. 
Marion Ross Fedrick, Ed.D.
