Sharing Information on Progress (2015)
In publishing a sustainability report for the College of Business and Economics (COBE) at Boise State University, we are making our first attempt to transparently report on the social, economic and environmental impacts that we have on our key stakeholders, and to role model this leading corporate and organizational practice to inspire our business and academic peers to follow suit.
Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
Through our Responsible Business Research (RBR) efforts, we have documented the classes, research and service contributions within the College that integrate responsible business concepts including business ethics, corporate social responsibility, environmental sustainability and diversity. Currently, 75 undergraduate classes and 23 graduate classes in the College have integrated responsible business topics into the curriculum, including 82% of our general business core curriculum. We also offer undergraduate minors in both sustainability and non profit management. 15 graduate and undergraduate students have documented these and other responsible business efforts and impacts by publishing the College’s first sustainability report, published in May 2015.
Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability
More than 30 faculty members conduct responsible business research and our faculty performed more than 82 responsible business service projects over the past seven years. Additionally, our Responsible Business Initiative regularly collaborates with external stakeholders on student and faculty projects, as well as community programming on responsible business. 15 graduate and undergraduate students have documented these and other responsible business efforts and impacts by publishing the College’s first sustainability report, published in May 2015.
