The compilation of research studies provided in this book is informative on many levels. Perhaps its most compelling feature is the in-depth research regarding programs that involve the seemingly intangible, yet possible, advantages of higher education – social responsibility, spiritual generosity, resilience, social- emotional learning, woman empowerment, self-regulation, the justice ecosystem, thought leadership, et al. It could serve as an international guide to developing and/or replicating programs that empower students to help others while strengthening their own abilities. I recommend it highly.” – Peter L. Schneller, PhD, Emeritus Professor, University of Mount Union Alliance, OH USA


This book offers 18 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 sensitisation programmes. The chapters capture the efficient and successful models of social responsibility practiced by Indian and foreign universities. The models are proposed based on the evidence from a rigorous research process. Universities across the world can benefit from the best practices and implement the same successfully. The models will be helpful to universities in achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and rank higher on the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). The research-based chapters will have significant benefits to researchers in expanding the domain of social responsibility of higher education institutions. As a text, this book will serve students of higher education in sustainability and social responsibility related courses.
