Transnationally Accepted Definition of a Responsible International University

‘A responsible international university (RIU) should have, at its core, a will to proactively integrate a global dimension to achieve a ‘common good’ for the benefit of society, while recognising the glocal community as a key stakeholder and beneficiary of any output. This integration should: be intentional in teaching, learning and research activities at home ; seek to be in alignment with the UNSDGs, as well as the institution’s strategic goals; be considered as a key aspect of the institution’s social responsibility ; and be operationalised sustainably on local, national, and international levels.’
