This course is designed to engage students in a discussion of Corporate Social Responsibility through a series of interactive learning activities. The course will begin with preparing the students to discuss and debate the definition and importance of CSR to a company’s strategy. We’ll then move on to examine situations in which companies have not done a very good job at demonstrating good CSR practices, and we’ll examine the complexity of those situations and the range of possible responses. Finally, we’ll look at some companies that have demonstrated CSR “best practices”, and discuss what these examples teach us that we can apply in our future careers. The class depends highly on student participation, and student interests will drive the topics and situations that are considered and discussed.
