PRME Champion 2024-2025 badge

The Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), an initiative of the United Nations Global Compact, named 47 PRME Champions for 2024-2025 who have a “track record of impactful contributions in thought and action leadership.”

UNH Paul is one of only three business schools in the United States chosen for this distinction. Others include Freeman College of Management at Bucknell University and Seattle Pacific University’s School of Business, Government, and Economics.

The PRME Champions represent a group of dedicated business and management schools from across the PRME community that are committed to working collaboratively to develop and promote activities that deliver value for business and society at large. Previous collaborations by PRME Champions include the Climate Literacy Training for Business Schools, the Blueprint for SDG Integration, and its extended library, and more.

The focus of the 2024-2025 champions will be on advancing the re-commitment to the refreshed Seven Principles of PRME; engagement in thematic roundtables for generating ideas and solutions to institutional challenges within business schools that support the PRME strategy; and aligning with the vision of the United Nations Global Compact in completing actions toward achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As a flagship PRME programme, the PRME Champions Programme provides faculty members with a space for developing and sharing collaborative educational methods and a ‘living lab’ for ambitious new ideas for developing the next generation of sustainability-driven business schools and management-related higher education institutions in support of the SDGs.
