Sharing Information on Progress (2018)
Period Covered: Apr 2016 to Apr 2018
Detroit Mercy’s 2018 report on activities related to the Principles for Responsible Management Education outlines both educational and community-based initiatives. We have incorporated socially responsible management concepts throughout our graduate and undergraduate curricula, our scholarly research, and our community outreach activities.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
All undergraduate business and accounting majors are required to study Ethics, Business Leadership & Social Responsibility, and acquire a global perspective and sensitivity to international issues through coursework and projects. At the graduate level, Personal Development, Ethics, and Social Responsibility in Organizations is a required course for all MBA students, and elective courses are offered on Global Sustainable Development. The College has placed renewed emphasis on service-learning, in which students perform community service as part of their educational experience, at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. And the College is now launching a new Center for Social Entrepreneurship as an incubator for ventures designed to enrich society through sustainable commerce.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Roughly 20% of our published research focuses on issues such as ethics, social responsibility, environmental sustainability, sustainable development, and diversity. Interactions with companies have included more than two dozen guest lectures and presentations annually, including a recent lecture on Puerto Rico's debt crisis and another on social entrepreneurship; the involvement of corporate executives as mentors for both matriculated students and social entrepreneurs participating in the Center for Social Entrepreneurship; and a Global Leadership Seminar conducted by College faculty and staff for automotive executives from China.
