The University System of Georgia (USG) is highlighting its commitment to the highest ethical and professional standards of conduct through its annual Ethics Awareness Week, scheduled this year from November 9-15. The purpose of this week is to remind the USG community of its system-wide ethical culture, which is why the College of Coastal Georgia will host activities throughout the week to promote the shared core values of integrity, excellence, accountability, and respect. The College's theme for the week is "Celebrating our Ethical Culture."
