Period Covered: Jan 2015 to Apr 2017
This is the first SIP Report from Carmarthen Business School at University of Wales Trinity Saint David, submitted in 2017.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The generic objectives of all programmes include commitment to study and apply all functional areas to review and achieve CSR and social sustainability goals.
In this sense the study of sustainability and a variety of models to apply it are compulsory features of every student’s study journey.
Specific modules feature deeper review, reflection and application. Strategic management at undergraduate and Strategic Management and Sustainability at masters, are compulsory modules across all programme areas. The modules demand integration of conceptual understanding derived from functional or industry specific areas of the curriculum, with an additional demand to explore the integration of sustainability policies and CSR.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
The Faculty plans to roll out its new programmes to partner institutions in the form of outreach and franchise arrangements.
The Faculty of Business and Management plans to support similar developments in other faculties for curriculum development and interdisciplinary initiatives. It is planning interdisciplinary research projects in this field.
The Faculty has on-going interaction with companies, public services and 3rd sector organizations with which it shares policy development, training initiatives and research activity. For example it has collaboration links to private sector solar panel developer, Pure Wafer, with whom it is developing marketing and international links. Similar discussions are taking place with Energy International Systems Ltd and green building consultancy, GeenBuild Consult. In the public sector the Faculty is developing links with local authority planners and health and social services providers as part of its community engagement commitment. In the Not For Profit sector, the faculty has developed training links to housing authorities and mutual organisations. With a Not For Profit consultancy it has recently won a training contract to service Welsh Cooperatives.
The Faculty is planning conferences on ‘Sustainable Leadership’ with the CMI Cymru and ‘Managing the Sustainable Reporting Function’ of organisations linked to the Wales Audit Commission.
Sustainable and CSR models are also to be redesigned to act as training vehicles to service local and national organisations with possible accreditation for trainees.
The Faculty seeks to support regional development by training and collaborating with the Regional City Initiative and Rural Development strategy of our local, regional and national governments.
