Ethics Awareness: SPIRIT of USG

ETHICS AWARENESS WEEK: Celebrating our Ethical Culture

November 11 - 17, 2019


Promoting an Ethical Culture at East Georgia State College through "SPIRIT"

One of EGSC’s core values is to support and sustain an ethical environment. Our shared ethical values differentiate us as a financially stable institution and contribute significantly to a culture of respect where everyone is valued.

How do we send a true picture of who we are -- dedicated employees who educate and transform the lives of students attending East Georgia State College? The answer is within the power of one. Every employee makes a personal pledge to always be a great steward of the resources and responsibilities we have been entrusted to use. Our stewardship responsibility is the basis of how we support students – preparing them for life in all its challenges and uncertainties. That is who we are!

Our Ethics Policy provides the underlying core values that each member of the USG community must adhere to and be guided by – integrity, excellence, accountability and respect. The task of keeping our institution's reputation intact is both an individual and collective responsibility. It is up to all of us - students, faculty and staff - to do the right thing. It’s about our reputation. It’s about our pride. It’s about who we are and what we do.

We are good stewards. We are educators.  We are East Georgia State College, and we proudly represent the SPIRIT of the University System of Georgia through our Stewardship. Prevention. Integrity. Responsibility. Inspiration. Trust. SPIRIT is about the power of one and what can be accomplished through each of us. Thank you for doing your part to support an ethical culture at East Georgia State College.
