Ethical Business Leadership in Troubling Times

Edited by Joanne B. Ciulla and Tobey K. Scharding

Perhaps the fundamental question in CSR is: What are the responsibilities of businesses and business leadership to society? Moreover, do the responsibilities of business change in times of social and political turmoil? The chapters in this book tackle several aspects of these questions with chapters on business and politics, the environment, technology, and immigration; along with broader questions about leadership, governance, and the very nature of CSR.

Chapter 8: How can universities promote corporate responsibility in their supply chains? The experience of the University of Notre Dame

Georges Enderle


Universities are not only institutions of higher education; they also constitute powerful economic actors not the least as buyers of products and services for their own use and for sale to their customers. A special category of the products are the clothes, sportswear, memorabilia and many other goods which carry – often conspicuously – the logo of the university.

It concludes with policy suggestions for other universities and outlines several research opportunities.
