At Marietta College

This is a cutting-edge program that will give students a strong foundation in this booming field. Organizations are clamoring for employees who are well versed in the latest thinking in this area. Marietta's OSR graduates will be prepared to contribute actively to organizations' social responsibility initiatives. Through partnerships with corporations, our students will be able to deepen their understanding of Social Responsibility.

The general objective of the OSR Program is to provide students with the basis to be able to understand:

  1. Environmental, ethical, legal, educational, and/or cultural factors that contribute to sustainable economic and social development.
  2. Issues of cultural sensitivity and general awareness of organizations’ relations with local, regional, and global communities.
  3. Techniques used to assess community needs and measure the impact of specific organizational social responsibility efforts to satisfy those needs.
