History of PRME NA Chapter Regional Meetings

The emerging PRME Chapter North America (USA and Canada) was first discussed at the 1st PRME Canada Meeting /Regional Meeting North America in 2013. The PRME Chapter was created during the 2nd PRME Regional Meeting North America, hosted by University of Washington Bothell School of Business on 10-11 October 2014.

During the workshop, the participants expressed their interest in working together and strengthening the engagement in the region, leading to the formation of the PRME Chapter North America.

The 3rd PRME Regional Meeting North America was hosted by Coles College of Business, Kennesaw State University. A project called “2x1” was implemented for this meeting, encouraging PRME signatories to invite a non-PRME signatory or a colleague from their institution that is not that familiar with PRME, with the incentive that the second attendee does not pay the conference fee in order to promote the Six PRME Principles, encourage implementation, and recruit signatories.

The 4th PRME Regional Meeting North America was held by the University of Guelph College of Business and Economics in 2017. Full conference agenda and information can be found here.

The 5th PRME Regional Meeting North America was co-hosted by The Fowler Center for Business as an Agent of World Benefit, Weatherhead School of Management, Case Western Reserve University and the College of Business Administration, Kent State University June 2nd - 4th, 2019. The event brought together more than 70 participants from academic, non-profit, and corporate backgrounds. We hosted academic presentations as well as interactive sessions with business and social enterprise professionals focused on strengthening the economic and social impact of their organizations through examining potential partnerships with private, public, and social sector organizations. We explored the opportunities afforded by strategic partnerships and learned from each other about academic initiatives. More information about the meeting can be found at: https://weatherhead.case.edu/centers/fowler/prme-regional/

The 6th PRME Regional Meeting North America was hosted by George Mason University’s Business for a Better World Center in the School of Business April 21-23, 2022 with a theme of Building a Better Future Together. https://business.gmu.edu/news/...Sessions included a workshop for junior scholars, 17 Rooms activity, unveiling of curricular materials for integrating sustainability across disciplines, teaching, research, and change-making sessions, poster presentation sessions, visits to beekeeping and hydroponics initiatives, meetings with food service on sustainability initiatives on campus, and working sessions on priorities and initiatives for the future of PRME NA.

PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition Now Open!

Deadline April 30, 2024

OATCJ Case Competition - Call for Participation

The Open Access Teaching Case Journal (OATCJ) Editorial Committee is honoured to facilitate the OATCJ Case Competition for the PRME Chapter North America Biennial Meeting 2024.

Instructors or students from each participating Higher Education Institution (HEI) are invited to submit their original case research manuscript as per the guidelines below by midnight EST, April 30, 2024 to be eligible to participate in the PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition.

The OATCJ Editorial Committee will evaluate submitted cases based upon the guidelines included in the CFP to determine the Best Case and Honourable Mention Case Awards to be announced at the PRME NA 2024 conference venue. Competition finalists will fast-track into the peer-review process for OATCJ publication.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION: Authors must submit their completed manuscript via email attachment to oatcj@conestogac.on.ca by midnight EST, April 30, 2024. Be sure to use the following naming convention for your case document name: ‘PRME NA Case Competition-Author Last Name’ and for the email subject-line. All submissions must include a manuscript for the case study and a teaching note. Please carefully read the case study and teaching note guidelines provided below before submitting your manuscript to avoid delays in the review process.

The PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition accepts descriptive/evaluative or decision-based teaching case studies in all disciplines. Secondary sourced cases are accepted. Cases must be based on factual real-life occurrences that involve actual organizations and people (fictional cases are not accepted). Authors may choose to disguise the names (organizations or people) in the case. Previously published cases or articles (except those in proceedings or workshop presentations) are not eligible for consideration.

Authors will be asked to affirm that they obtained approval from authorized people in the organization where the case scenario takes place to publish the case story. This requirement also applies to cases where names are disguised. Authors will be asked to submit the release form if the case study is accepted for publication. The case release authorization is not required for cases developed using publicly available resources (published sources) instead of personal experience or interviews. For such case studies, care must be taken to properly source statements, actions, feelings, etc., attributed to actual persons or organizations. The target audience for published case studies is students.

All submissions will be identified and tagged based upon relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals content. Manuscripts addressing the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education are preferred; however, all topics are considered for publication.

Looking forward to your participation in the PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition!

OATCJ Editorial Committee,

PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition.


PRME Chapter North America OATCJ Case Competition adheres to the OATCJ Case Manuscript GENERAL FORMAT REQUIREMENTS

Case study and teaching note files must be in MS Word format. The case release form may be in pdf format. Files should be thoroughly proofread before submission to ensure grammatical integrity. All files should be edited by the contributor before submission to ensure correct and consistent format, spelling, punctuation, and grammar.

OATCJ uses Canadian spelling, the Canadian Press Stylebook, and a modified APA style for citations and formatting. OATCJ style will be applied by the OER Hub team to ensure consistency and accessibility for all learners; contributor will have the opportunity approve any substantive changes, but minor corrections will not be subject to approval.


Please remove the author name(s) from your manuscripts to ensure the integrity of the double blind-review process.

Teaching case study outline: Opening paragraph; background information for the organization, industry, and the protagonist(s); case narrative; decision points (where applicable); and the closing paragraph, followed by exhibits (where applicable). Successful manuscripts will follow this format.

Images and tables must be captioned, numbered, and cited appropriately in the text. Images should be supplied directly within the document in the highest quality possible (coloured or B&W). High quality image files might be requested from authors if the manuscript is accepted for publication.

Author(s) must use past tense when describing the case events except for direct quotes from people. The manuscript limit is 30 pages, including references and appendixes. It is recommended that the main case body be a maximum of 10 pages. Single spacing with Times New Roman 12 pt font is required. References must be in APA format and cited in the case text as footnotes. Footnotes may also be used for short explanations when needed to maintain the logical flow of the text.


Please remove the author name(s) from your manuscripts to ensure the integrity of the double blind-review process.

All cases submitted by the HEI Instructor must be accompanied with a teaching note that will only be made available to instructors in the event of publication. Please use the following guidelines, as appropriate for your case submission.

Case Summary: A short summary of the case, consisting of no more than 500 words. The summary should include at least, 1) the organization upon which the case is based; 2) an introduction of the protagonist; and, 3) an explanation of the key problem, or decision in the case.

Pedagogical Learning Objectives: List the learning objectives for the case – typically no more than three to five. While cases may often be used to explore a variety of learning objectives, restrict the learning objectives listed in this section to those that are directly explicated in the teaching note.

Relevant Courses: Describe where the case may be used in coursework. Specifically, describe the types of programs in which the case may be used (e.g., undergraduate, graduate courses) as well as the types of courses and business disciplines (e.g., HR, MIS, Operations Management, etc.).

Suggested Teaching Approaches In this section, include a description of how the case could be used in classes. This could include usages in major projects or in-class teaching plans. When describing in-class teaching plans, make note of the amount of time required to follow the plan. Instructors will want to know whether the teaching plan is appropriate for 80-minute, 110-minute, or 170-minute classes.

Research Methods: The Research Methods section explains how you obtained the data for the case, the data gathering process you implemented, and the details regarding these research activities. For example, you can indicate whether you obtained data for the case based upon interviews with the main protagonist in the case story, the number and length of the interviews, and how you gained access to the organization’s material used for the case. Or did you obtain information from secondary sources? Identify all sources.

Associated Readings: Include several associated readings that may be used by instructors to augment course material to provide theoretical context to the learning objectives. Cases are meant to provide students with an opportunity to apply theory, these readings are an opportunity to guide instructors as to which theories may be applied in search of the case resolution. These readings are in addition to any appendices that you may choose to include at the end of the instructor’s manual.

The readings should be included here as full APA references. If there are permanent web links to the articles, such as DOI article links, provide these in addition to the APA style references.

Analysis and Discussion Questions: Include discussion questions appropriate either for in-class, group, or online discussion. The discussion questions should be answerable reading the case study and the associated readings and should relate to the specified learning objectives identified in the teaching note. The discussion questions should match your plan described in the “suggested teaching approaches” section. For example, if your teaching plan describes an 80 minute in-class discussion, then the depth and breadth of discussion questions should be commensurate with answering the questions within that period.

Provide an exemplar answer to each of the discussion questions. In particular, describe how theory may be applied to address the discussion question. As appropriate, provide instructors with guidance about common student mistakes when answering each question. Include all relevant analyses necessary to address the key problem and the intended learning outcomes of the case.

Epilogue: If you have information about what happened chronologically after the end of the time-period described in the case, then include it here. The epilogue need not provide a suitable, or “correct” resolution to the case – the intent of the epilogue is to provide students with further information about the real-world case. In fact, non-ideal solutions to the case problem provide a cautionary tale and may offer further emphasis of learning objectives.

Appendices (Exhibits): Appendices are for the use of instructors, who may choose to share them with students. They may be frameworks or models related to theory described in the “additional readings,” or they may be of the author’s own devising. Always provide a “source” reference below each appendix. The inclusion of copied/reproduced visuals from other author’s work is not allowed without explicit permission from the original author. If a visualization is included that is derived from another’s work, then that should be referenced using APA style format.
