The University of Vermont Grossman School of Business PRME SIP Report - View Report

Period Covered: Jan 2014 to Mar 2015

The Grossman School of Business at the University of Vermont prepares students to become business leaders in a complex and dynamic global environment.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

Full-time students can find opportunities to work on applied projects with local, national and international organizations. With a state that boasts the largest chapter of Business for Social Responsibility and faculty representation on the Vermont Employee Ownership Center board and the Vermont Family Business Initiative, students can use a vibrant social network to explore their interests in social and environmental issues. Speakers drawn from our local business community and our broad alumni base provide insight to the strategies of Seventh Generation, Tom's of Maine, GE, Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, NRG Systems, Unilever and UBS.


Where students' curiosity is piqued by research, there are multiple active research programs addressing social and environmental responsibility themes including the effect of downsizing on communities, the encouragement of local enterprise ownership to sustain employment, costs and benefits of volunteerism, building potable water solutions in remote communities, and the competitive advantage of green supply chains. And, for the student who desires depth in business and depth in social issues or environmental issues, it is possible to combine a graduate program in business with a graduate program in non-profit management, social work, environmental science or environmental policy.
