Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

We are a new Institution of Higher Education (University), which has received its approval in May, 2016, and is commencing the first academic session from the current year.
We commit to include from the very beginning, the six principles of PMRE, and achieve the following through our various educational endeavours:

1. Conducting a Workshop for the Faculties of the University informing and updating them in regards the Principles and Values of Global Social Responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact, including but not limited to Promotion and Protection of Human Rights, Protection of Environment, and Preventing Labour Abuse and Corruption in business and non-business practices.

2. Designing the curricula of the University, making the values of global social responsibility incorporated in them. It is the youth of today who will become leaders of tomorrow, and it is essential that we start educating about Social Values and Responsibilities from the grassroot level. By teaching the students a curricula related to these Values, the leaders of tomorrow would understand the importance of Global Social Responsibilities, missing in today's scenario.

3. Conducting various Workshops in the University promoting the values of Social Responsibility not just to Management students, but also other Departments. Attendance of these Seminars would lead to minor study credits as an incentive, which will help the overall grade of a student in his Semester(s).

4. Project Assignments will be given to students from time-to-time related to Social Responsibilities.

5. Researches by students will be promoted in areas of Corporate and Environmental Responsibility and Sustainability to identify the current gaps and lags in corporate policies and what improvements or changes can be made to improve the situation.
