Responsible Leadership Initiative
Business as a force for good
The Responsible Leadership Initiative promotes business as a force for good and demonstrates through practice and research how business can drive achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals established in 2016 by the United Nations Global Compact. The Responsible Leadership Initiative is supported by the College’s mission: Employing an entrepreneurial mindset, we generate societal impact through top-tier research, innovative education and meaningful engagement with the business community. We are guided by our core values of excellence, accountability, collaboration, inclusivity and respect.
The College introduced the Responsible Leadership Initiative in Fall 2017, after becoming a signatory to Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) and an associate member of the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI) in Spring 2017. Both organizations are supported by AACSB, our international accrediting body, which advocates that colleges and schools of business teach business as a force for good throughout the world.
The Sustainable Development Goals provide a framework and common language for educating students on how to create and lead responsible business initiatives that contribute value to workers, communities and the environment in addition to generating profits.
