Verdier Week Celebrates Core Values

Event Details


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.
