ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Students and faculty at universities across the state are learning about international fraud.

Officials at Albany State University are hosting a number of events to bring awareness to fraud issues. 

Albany Police Chief Michael Persley spoke to students Tuesday about several types of fraud, including healthcare. 

Persley is one of many speakers the university will welcome this week. 

It's part of an annual effort the University System of Georgia makes to teach students about ethics and code of conduct policies. 

"All of this is to just speak to the students, faculty, and staff of the importance of being good stewards of the resources we have been bestowed upon," explained Edgars Patani, a staff auditor at ASU. 

Presentations later this week will focus on how students can identify fraud and report it.
