Department Excellence Award
Augusta State University’s Staff Advisory Council awards the Department Excellence Award to one department every year. The Department Excellence Award recognizes performance excellence towards the overall mission of the university. As we will be consolidating with GHSU; we have moved our May award to this December.
As a unit of the University System of Georgia, Augusta State University is committed to excellence in teaching, advancement of knowledge, and enrichment of the community in a climate that fosters humane values and a life-long love of learning.
This mission is based on the value of a liberal arts education for students who are diverse in ethnicity, background, age, and preparation.
The mission obligates the university to be open to the voices of all its members, to be responsive to the needs of its community, and to measure its success by the success of its students.
To accomplish its mission, the university offers a broad array of undergraduate programs in arts and sciences and professional fields of study and graduate programs below the doctoral level. It fosters the intellectual growth of its students through learning assistance in a university college, honors courses, and student research and cultivates faculty members who are excellent in teaching, active in scholarship, and generous in service.
