Call for Healthy Respect Award nominations

Civil Rights Leader Martin Luther King Jr. once said “The time is always right to do the right thing,” and Georgia Regents University takes pride in its efforts of promoting a culture of civility.

GRU’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the Healthy Respect Committee want to recognize our employees and students who are putting this mission into practice in their academic, workplace, or patient-care environments. If you would like to nominate someone for the Healthy Respect Award, visit gru.edu/diversity/healthyrespect and click the Civility in Action link.

Nominations are due by Oct. 31, 2014, and the first 50 people to submit a nominee will receive a free Healthy Respect T-shirt.

GRU’s Healthy Respect award will be presented at the end of each academic semester, though anyone from GRU, Georgia Regents Medical Center, or Georgia Regents Medical Associates can be nominated. The first winner will be named this fall.

“At GRU, we are committed to developing a culture that encourages our employees, students, patients, and friends to interact with each other in a positive and respectable manner,” said Jim Rush, GRU Chief Integrity Officer. “Those who are going above and beyond in fostering this type of environment should be recognized for their efforts in making GRU, GR Medical Center and GR Medical Associates a great place to learn, work, and visit .”

Be sure to also view the other features highlighted on the university’s new Healthy Respect website and feel free to take the pledge to support and promote an environment of respect and dignity at GRU.
