Reviews

"This book on managing the social responsibilities of universities is a welcomed contribution in the era when universities worldwide have redefined their strategies, missions, and policies. Moreover, these activities raise discussion on how higher education institutions should address their societal role and make impact in a long-term manner. Rather than relying on the one-size-fits-all approach, the authors outline diverse possibilities to manage university social responsibility, discuss its different indicators, offer viewpoints on teaching approaches for enforcing responsibility and sustainability and encourage both introspection and development of higher education institutions." (Marjo Siltaoja, Associate Professor, Jyväskylä University School of Business and Economics (JSBE) & Executive Committee member of European Business Ethics Network)
