Social responsibility involves economic, legal, ethical, and discretionary actions taken by individuals and organizations to foster the betterment of the community, both locally and globally.
Teaching social responsibility and the ethical implications of knowledge and action is one of the educational objectives of the Barney School of Business.
By embracing social responsibility and by examining the ethical implications of knowledge, students learn to evaluate the effects of actions and social policies and seek to make the world we live in a better place.
