Verdier Week Celebrates Core Values
Date: April 3 - April 8, 2017
Augustana will mark the 15th anniversary of the Covenant Award, the honor recognizing students who exemplify the University's five core values: Christian, Liberal Arts, Excellence, Community and Service during Verdier 2017, a celebration of the morals and ethics that have guided Augustana since 1860.
From Norwegian to English, "verdier" translates to "values; the moral principles and beliefs or accepted standards of a person or community."
