Verdier Week Celebrates Core Values

Event Details


Date: April 16 - April 21, 2018


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 2018, 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."
