Federation Business School and the PRME
Federation Business School (FBS) first joined the PRME in 2012 and is now an Advanced PRME signatory. FBS has funded a PRME Coordinator role and established a PRME committee, responsible for implementation of the school's PRME Strategic Plan 2016-20. This plan maps the school’s PRME priorities for the next five years and how the school intends to meet its PRME obligations.
FBS continues to embed the principles of sustainability, values and ethics and corporate social responsibility into the university experience of all staff and students undertaking FBS programs. FBS has continued its participation in programs such as Enactus@FedUni and the New Colombo Plan, that engage staff and students in activities for an inclusive and sustainable global economy
Dedicated PRME courses for graduate and undergraduate programs have been developed and are now delivered as core courses for all Business School students. These courses embed the themes of sustainability, corporate social responsibility, values and ethics into every program offered by FBS and these themes are reinforced throughout each student’s academic experience.
FBS is currently developing an online professional development program to assist academic and administration staff to embed the PRME into their professional roles.
Shared Information on Progress Report
PRME signatories are required to submit a Shared Information on Progress (SIP) Report every two years detailing their progress in embedding the six principles and the Sustainable Development Goals into school activities. This report is publicly available on the Federation Business School page of the UN PRME website.
