This category recognises initiatives by tertiary education institutions which create significant benefits for local communities, disadvantaged groups and/or society as a whole in either the UK (or host country) or developing countries. As well as specific initiatives, this category includes institutions taking a leading and visionary role in multi-partner activities such as community development or urban regeneration.
Although all applications will be considered on their merits, the judges will be looking for ‘social responsibility’ type initiatives which have an element of proactive community and social concern, rather than ‘business as usual’ activities which create immediate financial benefit for the institution such as putting on new courses for particular groups.
Activities which have a substantial student element should be submitted to the Student Engagement category.
The Winning entry will automatically be put forward for the International Green Gown Award for Social Responsibility.
