Corporate Social Responsibility is the aim to embrace responsibility for a company's actions and encourage a positive impact on the environment through activities involving consumers, employees, communities, and stakeholders. Corporate Social Responsibility goes beyond what is required by regulators and promotes the betterment of business practices for sustained positive change. Corporate Social Responsibility Day (CSR Day) provides the opportunity for students to learn from industry leaders about the growing importance of Corporate Social Responsibility in the workplace.

Corporate Social Responsibility is an ever-growing topic of conversation in the corporate world. It is the initiative to embrace responsibility for a company's actions and encourage a positive impact on society through activities involving consumers, employees, communities, stakeholders, and the environment. Corporate Social Responsibility goes beyond what is required by regulators and promotes the betterment of business practices for sustained positive change for consumers, employees, communities, and stakeholders. As companies become more forward-thinking and involved in the community through their core business practices, they create shared value for business and society.
