The Center for Responsible Business strives to be a leader in corporate social responsibility research, both in the academic and practitioner arenas. In our early stage of development, we will place priority on the Stakeholder Engagement and Transparency area, specifically focusing on developing quantitative metrics and measurement.
Berkeley has long been a bastion of quantitative excellence, as well as an institution committed to creating positive social change. The powerful combination of these two strengths can provide substantial contributions to the nascent field of CSR. The Center for Responsible Business will enable talented students, faculty and visiting scholars to pursue their research interests on issues related to corporate social responsibility resulting in works that include peer review journal publications, conference presentations and research symposia, case studies, and internally-produced publications.
