The mission of the Center for Education on Social Responsibility (CESR) is to develop socially conscious, values-driven business leaders by preparing students to meet the ethical, social and environmental challenges of today’s business world. As part of the central mission at the Leeds School of Business, CESR creates pedagogies that are national models and plays a leadership role in operationalizing the Leeds School’s commitment to developing leaders of conscience. CESR’s course offerings include two required courses at the undergraduate level and one at the MBA level. CESR electives, cross-listed courses and student clubs are offered at both levels. The Center also offers the Certificate in Socially Responsible Enterprise (SRE) for undergraduates and the Sustainability Portfolio for graduate students.
