Walden’s School of Management is proud to be a participant in Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), a worldwide strategic policy initiative designed to inspire and champion responsible management education, research, and thought leadership. Launched at the 2007 U.N. Global Compact Leaders Summit in Geneva, the initiative includes more than 500 leading business schools and management-related academic institutions from more than 80 countries.
Principles of Global Social Responsibility
As a participant in PRME, we commit to educating students based on a set of six principles related to responsible business and leadership practices:
Teach students to generate sustainable value for business and society and to work for an inclusive, sustainable global economy.
Incorporate the values of global social responsibility into academic activities and curricula.
Teach using educational frameworks, materials, processes, and environments that create responsible leaders.
Engage in research on the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in creating sustainable social, environmental, and economic value.
Interact with managers of business corporations to improve knowledge about the challenges of meeting social and environmental responsibilities, and explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.
Facilitate dialogue and debate among educators, students, businesses, government, consumers, media, civil society organizations, and other interested groups and stakeholders on global social responsibility and sustainability.
Participation in this initiative demonstrates Walden’s commitment to corporate sustainability and social responsibility.
