5 December 2016 | New York – The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) today announced that 24 schools were delisted from the PRME initiative for failure to meet the mandatory reporting requirement.
The delisting of PRME signatories, first rolled out in January 2013, is part of ongoing efforts by PRME to enhance the accountability and credibility of the initiative and follows from a recommendation by the PRME Steering Committee as well as from the wider PRME community.
“While joining PRME is voluntary, the SIP policy enables us to hold signatories accountable to their commitment,” Jonas Haertle, Head of PRME, has said. “This will help to increase the credibility of the initiative overall and also to recognise those signatories that report on their changes to curriculum, research and campus practices, based on the principles of PRME.”
Under the policies of PRME, participating signatory institutions must issue a Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report at least once every two years on their implementation of the initiative’s Six Principles. Failure to meet the SIP deadline results in a signatory being listed as “non-communicating” on the PRME website. Non-communicating signatories at risk of being delisted can regain their status as “active” participants by submitting a SIP report. Signatories that are listed as non-communicating for more than one year are subsequently delisted, which takes place every June and December.
While delisted signatories are removed entirely from PRME’s database, the initiative does allow those willing to return. To rejoin PRME, institutions must send a new letter of commitment signed by the highest executive to the PRME Steering Committee and submit a SIP to the PRME Secretariat.
Any questions or concerns related to the SIP Policy, or the recent delisting, please email PRMESecretariat@unprme.org.
