Models for Social Responsibility Action by Higher Education Institutions

This book offers 19 chapters on replicable models for social responsibility actions for universities and other academic institutions. The chapters are broadly classified under two major areas: sustainable development models and social sensitization programmes. The chapter captures the efficient and successful social responsibility models practised by Indian and foreign universities. The models are proposed based on the evidence from the rigorous research process. Universities worldwide can benefit from the best practices and implement the same successfully. The models will be helpful to the universities in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and rank higher on the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). The research-based chapter will significantly benefit researchers in expanding the domain of social responsibility of higher education institutions. As a text, this book will serve higher education students in sustainability and social responsibility-related courses.
