Abstract:

The impacts of universities to the environment, and the consumption of natural resources as part of their activities and in support of their infra-structure, is significant. This means that the implementation of the principles of social responsibility as part of their sustainability efforts has become a pressing issue.  Among other factors, the integration  of social  responsibility and sustainability initiatives at many universities is made difficult by the general lack of awareness and spread misconceptions about the meaning of social responsibility which, in turn, slows down the process of integration of  social responsibility and sustainability initiatives.

This paper presents an analysis about the misconceptions related to the implementation of social responsibility and sustainability initiatives at universities, describes the most widespread ones, as well as their implications. A special emphasis is given to the problems and barriers caused by misinformation, which – in turn – prevent the promotion of social responsibility and sustainability initiatives at the institutional level in an integrated manner. Finally, some concrete steps which may be taken in order to break the misconceptions and foster a closer integration of social responsibility and sustainability initiatives at universities, are outlined.
