The University Social Responsibility Network (USRN) has identified the month of October as the “USR Month”. USRN member universities around the world will demonstrate and highlight their commitment to social responsibility by showcasing their social responsibility activities during this month.

Through the USR Month campaign, universities affiliated to the USRN will be able to learn from each other’s USR initiatives as well as to motivate other universities outside the USRN to strengthen their USR initiatives. Ultimately, it is hoped that there will be increased awareness of USR, propelling a USR movement in the global higher education sector.

Numerous USRN member universities have joint this global USR Month campaign in October 2018. Below are a few examples of what the member universities have done this month.

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University

 University of Manchester

University of Pretoria

Yonsei University

University of São Paulo
