A company's core business success relies on the integration of Corporate Social Responsibility throughout its business programs and strategies.

Participants in this Duke University Executive Education program will have access to the best data, best practices, metrics for performance and access to key subject matter experts in a program designed to meet the needs of all participants. Registered participants will also receive benchmarking assessments of their respective companies' efforts in CSR, provided by graduate students under supervision of program faculty at the Sanford School. 

 

About the Program

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 course will cover all the critical elements of effective corporate social responsibility programming. It will cover environmental and sustainability efforts, diversity, equity and inclusion, supply chain practices, community and employee engagement, labor practices, investment strategies, corporate philanthropy and public private partnerships. As part of the program over a dozen of the most gifted practitioners  in each of these areas will share what works and what doesn't, and most importantly how to best implement effective strategies and chart a path forward into the future.

Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University

Duke-Panorama-1-2048x898.jpg

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).

The Sanford School is dynamic hub for interdisciplinary teaching and learning at Duke. The school’s accomplished faculty includes 19 scholars who hold distinguished chairs and five members of National Academies. The 70 core faculty members represent numerous academic fields including public policy, economics, political science, history, psychology, medicine, health policy, international development and population studies. The faculty also includes distinguished practitioners from government, law, diplomacy, journalism, international development and public health. They have been top officials in U.S. federal agencies, the White House Council of Economic Advisers, the World Bank, and India’s Administrative Service, international NGOs and major foundations. Among them are former senior civilian attorney for the U.S. Army Tom Taylor, former U.S. Treasury Deputy Assistant Secretary Billy Pizer, and former Facebook executive Matt Perault.

The Sanford School operates several multidisciplinary research centers that focus on topics including, energy, health policy, child and family policy, food policy, international development, terrorism and security studies.
