UNE SIP PRME 2016 - View Report

Period Covered: Sep 2013 to Apr 2016

We review UNE's progress in embedding PRME in our curriculum at both the undergraduate and postgraduate levels and report on key activities that demonstrate how we have enacted the principles since our last report in 2013.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

The Graduate School of Business (GSB) already teaches RME principles throughout parts of our curriculum.We are reviewing our distance education MBA with a view to creating a more cohesive approach to RME across our core units. Further, we are in discussion with other institutions to create a consortium to develop an MBA designed from scratch to meet PRME from both a content and pedagogical perspective. The GSB has developed a draft sustainability statement which when finalised will serve as a template for running our school more sustainably.

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

As a University located in a regional area, UNE has a long association with matters related to land management and agribusiness. One of the key priority areas is Environmental and Agricultural Change which encompasses research into sustainability issues affecting the sector. Further work is carried out on the area of business and management including new work in the area of incorporating sustainability issues into business strategy. Extensive work has already been done around the area of business and professional ethics. We are proposing a research centre that will focus on issues facing professionals and this will have a key focus on CSR, sustainability and ethical practice.
