The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) is a United Nations-supported initiative founded in 2007 as a platform to raise the profile of sustainability in schools around the world, and to equip today's business students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow.
As a voluntary initiative with over 650 signatories worldwide, PRME has become the largest organised relationship between the United Nations and management-related higher education institutions.
Working through Six Principles, PRME engages business and management schools to ensure they provide future leaders with the skills needed to balance economic and sustainability goals, while drawing attention to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and aligning academic institutions with the work of the UN Global Compact.
As a signatory to the United Nation’s Principles for Responsible Management Education, the Haworth College of Business is proud to present its third Sharing Information on Progress report. Within the pages linked below, we detail actions we have taken between 2016 and 2018 that are aligned with the six principles of PRME. Throughout the report, where applicable, the UN's SDG's have been linked to activities and outcomes from the college.

Future Direction and Desired Support
The Haworth College of Business is making significant progress to provide our students the most comprehensive exposure to sustainability of any business school in the state of Michigan. We have laid the groundwork to ensure our graduates enter their careers as responsible business leaders. We have done this, in part, by integrating sustainability into our assurance of learning framework and by implementing a required sustainability course of all our graduates.
That said, there is more work to do. Read more about next steps for the Haworth College of Business.
