Abstract

Social Responsibility Universities are universities that acknowledge endeavors in University Social Responsibility as part of a strategic plan. This study shows how one of the Schools of the University Politécnica of Madrid in Spain has implemented and validated ISO 26000 as a way to extend its commitments to university social responsibility. It is the first Spanish university institution to implement ISO 26000:2010 on social responsibility with the aim of being externally audited, and it is also the only institution to do this internationally. This School is now supported with evidence that can be verified by interest groups and by academic institutions that apply social responsibility as a strategy through governance and performance. In turn, the School has taken further strides toward the University’s commitments to society. This case study could help other universities towards the University Social Responsibility.

Universidades Socialmente Responsables son universidades que reconocen los esfuerzos en la responsabilidad social universitaria como parte de un plan estratégico. Este estudio muestra cómo una de las Escuelas de la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid en España ha implementado y validado ISO 26000 como una forma de extender sus compromisos con la responsabilidad social universitaria. Es la primera institución universitaria española en implementar ISO 26000: 2010 sobre responsabilidad social con el objetivo de ser auditada externamente, y también es la única institución que hace esto internacionalmente. Esta escuela ahora está respaldada con evidencia que puede ser verificada por grupos de interés y por instituciones académicas que aplican la responsabilidad social como estrategia a través del gobierno y el desempeño. A su vez, la escuela ha dado nuevos pasos hacia los compromisos de la Universidad con la sociedad. Este estudio de caso podría ayudar a otras universidades a trabajar en la Responsabilidad Social Universitaria.
