PRME Community Meets at Academy of Management, Discusses “Greening” Management Education

(Chicago, 9 August 2009) – The PRME community met at this year’s Academy of Management (AOM) meeting in Chicago for an all-Academy Professional Development Workshop (PDW) on the topic “Greening Management Education: Educating for Global Responsibilities, Sustainability and Ethics” More than 70 scholars - from institutions participating in PRME and also non participating schools - joined the discussion and used the opportunity to share knowledge and best practices. The workshop was kicked off by presentations from Dean Carolyn Woo (University of Notre Dame), James E. Post (Boston University), Rich Leimsider (Aspen Institute) and Ron Nahser (Presidio School of Management). The presentations revealed the need for thought leadership and collective as well as individual action with regard to business schools' sustainability agenda. The discussions uncovered a variety of existing best practices (e.g. integrated teams between engineers and business school faculty to address the technical side of environmental problems) and also exposed the need for further discussion among PRME participants. Further highlighted issues included: (1) the need to develop assessment techniques to better measure learning outcomes, (2) the desire to integrate social and environmental issues in courses and also across the curriculum, and (3) the call for strengthening interactions between business school departments when approaching sustainability in the classroom. The PDW was jointly organized by Juliane Iannarelli (AACSB), Sandra Waddock (Boston College), Patricia H. Werhane (DePaul University Chicago) and Andreas Rasche (Warwick Business School).
