Each year East Georgia State College participates in Ethics Awareness Week. This year, EGSC will celebrate November 11-15. The University System of Georgia has an Ethics and Compliance Program that promotes the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct within the University System of Georgia and to ensure compliance with all applicable laws, regulations and policies. Ethics Awareness Week helps serve as a reminder of those standards and conduct.
EGSC has activities set up throughout the week for students, faculty and staff to take part in. Monday, November 11, the daily email quizzes will begin. These quizzes will take place all week and feature ethics-based questions through EGSC’s email platform. Human Resources will also be sending a daily fraud awareness email. The University System of Georgia will be releasing their Ethics Refresher Compliance Training Modules on Monday. On Tuesday, November 12, EGSC’s Student Government Association voted to watch the movie The Help in the Luck F. Gambrell Auditorium at 12:30 p.m. Student Life will be providing pizza for students. Wednesday will be trivia day in the library. Game times are 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. Teams can sign up to compete for prizes.
