Duke Sanford Webinar on Corporate Social Responsibility

Prof. Stan Litow led an information webinar on Sanford’s upcoming online Corporate Social Responsibility executive education program. Participants took this opportunity to ask Prof. Litow questions about the course content and logistics. Watch the recording here.

Strong CSR performance increases the likelihood that a business will achieve its business goals, engage and support its employees, and deliver bottom line results for its shareholders and clients. Recent events involving the pandemic and heightened awareness of the need to embrace diversity and inclusion have put an even greater focus on CSR. Duke University’s Sanford School of Public Policy has taken on the challenge to assist the private sector in meeting its goals and objectives in CSR by offering corporate leaders the ability not only to understand the delivery of effective CSR efforts, and what to do to achieve strong results, but importantly how to organize and effectively deliver specific actions that will deliver high level results.

This Executive Education program will present all the key elements of CSR over a seven day period. The program includes specially designed materials, presentations and panel discussions covering the following key elements of an effective CSR program fully integrated into a business.

Tentative Program Schedule – Dec. 6-14 from 2:30-5pm (ET)*

The Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University

The Rubenstein Building of the Sanford School

The Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University is one of America’s leading schools of public policy, offering undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees in public policy and international development policy.

Terry Sanford, then president of Duke University, established the school in 1972 as the Institute of Policy Sciences and Public Affairs. Sanford’s experience as governor of North Carolina and, later, as a U.S. Senator, convinced him the country needed leaders who were not only politically savvy, but also ethically grounded and capable of rigorous analytical thinking. He urged students to set “outrageous ambitions,” a call to action that remains at the core of the school’s identity.

In 2020, U.S. News and World Report ranked the Sanford’s programs in the top 10 for public policy analysis, environmental policy, social policy and health policy. The school offers a PhD program, an undergraduate program, and three master’s programs: the Master of Public Policy (MPP), the Master of International Development Policy (MIDP), and the international Master of Environmental Policy (iMEP).
