Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Saint Xavier University’s Graham School of Management has achieved the following:
- Included corporate responsibility and sustainability in compulsory undergraduate and graduate
courses. MGMT 380: Business, Ethics and Society, MGMT 570: Business, Ethics and Governance.
Ensuring that issues related to sustainability, corporate social responsibility, social
entrepreneurship (innovation), corporate governance, moral and compassionate capitalism, labor work standards, human rights and environment responsibility are meaningfully addressed.
These topics are tailored to the course distinct features.
Future Plans - Graham School of Management will:
-Include information regarding PRME and corporate responsibility and sustainability in student orientation sessions.
-Display posters of the PRME and University’s Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics in key visible places throughout the School and University
- Include the PRME in the Graham School of Management newsletter and website.
-Participate in the various PRME conferences, workshops and seminars by faculty members and students.
- The Graham School of Management seeks to pursue corporate responsibility and sustainability purposefully and honestly; in this sense, its work is not and will likely never be done. Rather, the School seeks to understand and identify its strengths as well as its “blind spots,” those areas where a lack of attention and action may lead to a gap between its aspirations and its achievements. Recognizing that it cannot be among the best private or public business schools
without corporate responsibility and sustainability interwoven seamlessly into its very fabric, the Graham School of Management commits itself to the relentless pursuit of these values and opportunities.
-Through collaboration with faculty, alumni, other University departments, and community and businesses partners, the Graham School of Management’s Center for Experiential Learning will develop and deploy an initiative focused on academic research and knowledge development with companies in the areas of CSR and sustainability
