Georgia Highlands College (GHC) and the Executive Leadership thank you for taking a stand to ensure that GHC operates and encourages an Ethical Culture at all times. The Ethics Line has been an important part of our commitment to maintain an ethical culture and reinforce the USG Core Values of Integrity, Excellence, Accountability and Respect.

The Ethics Hotline was designed to further support the courageous actions taken by our employees. It is not intended to replace the existing channels of communication at the office of the President or office of Human Resources but is an additional platform providing anonymity and oversite. Should you have further questions or need additional information we ask that you reference the FAQ section of the website.

Georgia Highlands College and the University System of Georgia thank you in your willingness to come forward and support the development of an Ethical Culture.
