    Dear Colleagues, 


    We are proud to announce that Rutgers Business School and its Rutgers Institute for Corporate Social Innovation is hosting the 5th UN PRME NE Virtual Conference on October 26-29th, 2020 focused on "Sustainable Development Goals: Transforming Business Education and Practice"  and we have a wonderful conference planned. Academic, student, corporate, and NGO participants are invited to discuss issues and challenges pertaining to responsible management education as it relates broadly to all aspects of sustainability – Economic, Environmental, Social and Cultural. 


    The conference, to be held on Zoom, is co-sponsored by the UN Principles for Responsible Management Education (http://unprme.org/.

Rohrer College of Business, Rowan University.  


    In moving to a virtual platform from our original face-to-face meeting, we have expanded our invitation to participants from across North America and around the world. We already have over 500 participants representing 49 countries and 31 U.S. states! 


    We are excited to host seven inspiring keynote speakers, more than 30 informative interactive sessions, an outstanding executive panel, an insightful and diverse student panel, and multiple facilitated student-oriented dialogue sessions.  

    In light of the new AACSB Standards on Social Impact, this conference will be a great way to share, learn, and connect with others who are committed to social impact at Universities around the US and the world. 


    You are cordially invited to attend any or all sessions at no charge.
