Sharing Information on Progress - View Report

Period Covered: Feb 2017 to Jan 2019

The report shows our continued commitment to PRME. Significant progress has been made in embedding PRME within our Faculty’s curriculum. Research has been focused on the Centre for Business in Society (CBiS) which has grown considerably in the last two years. We have plans to spin off a second research centre based around financial and corporate integrity. Areas identified which for development include working with our partners and engaging more explicitly with the SDGs.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

The Business School has made progress in developing modules relating to CSR and ethical behaviour within their main business courses. This has been supported by new specialist staff being recruited. However Coventry University Business School is embedded within a much larger Faculty of Business, Environment and Society and the main objectives moving forward are to expand the Faculty's commitment to PRME beyond the Business School. The non-Business School part of the Faculty consists of the the Coventry Law School and Departments of English and Languages; Geography, Environment Science and Disaster Management; and International Studies and Social Science. The specific actions being taken are:

~ to raise the profile of PRME across the Faculty the responsibilityfor implementing PRME has been moved to the Faculty Director of Learning and Teaching (Paul Cashian), a post at Associate Dean level
~ a statement of student entitlement is being developed that issues of sustainability and ethical behaviour will be embedded within their course and delivered within the context of their discipline area
~ to ensure the PRME are embedded within the Faculty's formal procedures course teams will be expected to report on how they are meeting and developing the student entitlement as part of the annual course review process
~ the facilitation of a dialogue between the Faculty's teaching departments and applied research centres with the purpose of enriching the curriculum with 'live' CSR/ ethical behviour issues drawn from consultancy and research activities

Achievements Research Development in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

As part of strategic review of research by the University the Faculty has established two Faculty Research Centres (FRCs)

- Centre for Business in Society (CBiS)
- Centre for Communities and Social Justice (CCSJ)

These FRCs are continuing to address issues related to CSR and ethical behaviour from a range of cross-disciplinary perspectives.
