Social Responsibility

As a University we are acutely aware of our social responsibilities and we are confident in stating that we already go well beyond what is expected of an organisation.

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.
