PRME & Sustainable Management

In 2011, Clark SOM became a signatory to the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) initiative, strengthening its commitment to education, research, and collaboration that fosters sustainable social, economic, and environmental change.

The six PRME principles are infused throughout our business school activities and program curriculum, and highlights can be viewed in our latest PRME Report below.

We will develop the capabilities of students to be future generators of sustainable value for business and society at large and to work for an inclusive and sustainable global economy.

We will incorporate into our academic activities and curricula the values of global social responsibility as portrayed in international initiatives such as the United Nations Global Compact.

We will create educational frameworks, materials, processes and environments that enable effective learning experiences for responsible leadership.

We will engage in conceptual and empirical research that advances our understanding about the role, dynamics, and impact of corporations in the creation of sustainable social, environmental and economic value.

We will interact with managers of business corporations to extend our knowledge of their challenges in meeting social and environmental responsibilities and to explore jointly effective approaches to meeting these challenges.

We will facilitate and support dialog and debate among educators, students, business, government, consumers, media, civil society organizations and other interested groups and stakeholders on critical issues related to global social responsibility and sustainability.

Sustainable Development Goals

SDG logoTo continue SOM’s progress and grow in terms of climate action, ethical business practices, social justice and environmental sustainability, in December 2019, SOM faculty approved the integration of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals into our academic programs.  We are committed to social innovation by highlighting how these 17 SDG’s  are weaved throughout curricula, research and community outreach. A new tool is in place to record this information from faculty and staff, and we look forward to sharing our progress in the 2023 PRME Report.

As noted by AACSB, “The Sustainable Development Goals provide a unique opportunity for b-schools to contribute in a deeper way not only to their communities but to the world.”  For the School of Management, the SDG’s provide 17 specific goals whereby we will continue to live our University motto to “Challenge Convention. Change Our World.”
