Comments
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is when management decides to "do good for society". In other words, companies use some of their profits towards initiatives that benefit society. Some initiatives that are focused on include improving the environment, donating to charities (locally & nationally), and assisting community programs. These Corporate Social Responsibility actions obviously benefit our society. But, they also benefit corporations as more and more customers expect companies to act socially responsible. Satisfied customers can often mean more profit. We will examine specific examples of CSR. What has been successful? What has been unsuccessful? We will also debate why companies participate in CSR. Is it more socially-oriented or profit-oriented? Does that really matter as long as our communities and our world benefit? Furthermore, we will discuss social responsibility on an individual basis and how you can improve our society as a student, right now. In addition, this course will help freshmen students make the transition to higher education. College-level skills, including oral and written communication, study skills, time management, and library skills will be emphasized. These critical skills will help ensure the success of students during their freshman year, as well as their entire college career. Enrollment in this course includes a lecture twice per week and your selection of a once per week recitation topic.

  Course Description
The three credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps students with common learning outcomes focused on fundamental expectations for critical thinking, ethical reasoning, and oral communication, and learning at a university, all within topic focused subject matter. The Seminars provide students with an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 199 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
