The educational institutions are often looked upon to take a leadership role within societies. The educational institutions can and should build on a tradition of the past decades of attempting to engage in positive social actions. The educational institutions can meet the expectations of stakeholders by adopting a well-conceived CSR strategy in the same manner as other organizations. Therefore implementing CSR strategies in educational institutions should be considered in order to obtain a true competitive advantage and a positive reputation. Moreover practicing what is taught and thereby generating a real example of the academic knowledge can create a unique proposition for any educational institution.
The aim of the conference is to find out how the educational institutions are socially responsible to the environment and the society. This conference will focus on various initiatives and practices by educational institutions and the way it encourages social responsibility.
