Title

A REVIEW LITERATURE ON UNIVERSITY SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY INITIATIVES IN THE GLOBAL CONTEXT

Abstract

Social responsibility is gradually considered as an essential aspect of the higher education system, mainly for the universities. Some Universities are addressing important practical issues of the economy towards enhancing skills of young minds, giving them practical orientation, making them conscious of their responsibility towards society and finally leading to community empowerment. The experts from Europe, Africa, North America, Latin America and Asia concluded that the social responsibility of specific universities should be fostered promoting the preparation of specific Social Responsibility programmes at institutional level, including three main dimensions: social, economic and environmental. University Social Responsibility (USR) plays a roadmap which gives a vision to universities for developing solutions of economic, social, and environmental problems in society. The purpose of this paper is to review the literature on University Social Responsibility Initiatives in the global context and concludes that a university has three missions- Teaching, Research and USR (University Social Responsibility) but the broadcasting of sustainability reporting is still at an early stage in universities. Universities need to consider publishing more information on the social and educational dimensions. Universities tackle several reasons that slow down their performance of social role. There are some important barriers to implement in sustainability practices in higher education, such as the resistance to change, the lack of support from university administrators, the lack of specialization in sustainability by faculty or the lack of financial resources. Although many universities are undertaking social responsibility initiatives seriously through their centres with focus on these various fields like volunteer programs, Biodiversity, , carbon, energy , transport, waste and water management, Blood donation camps, conferences, workshops, internships etc.
