Although Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a relatively new concept, the University of Sunderland has embraced CSR principles for several decades, particularly at a local and regional level.
Under CSR, an organisation's internal and external practices can influence their employees, customers, partners and environment in a positive manner.
Research indicates that organisations that take a fair approach to their activities deliver a better service, maximise their potential and operate more productively in an increasingly competitive world.
To highlight our commitment to CSR we have produced a Corporate Social Responsibility statement - only the second such statement in the HE sector.
