Social Responsibility for Faculty: An Example of Faculty Involvement--Part I
McLaughlin, J. Patrick; Baker, John W., Jr.
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v2 n4 p87-94 2009
Social responsibility is a concept often used to describe how large corporations, or even small businesses, should "give back" something to the communities that they serve. We feel the same is true when it comes to faculty members. Oftentimes, the greatest expertise in a given subject area in a community is housed within the confines of the faculty members of the local college or university and such knowledge and expertise can be shared in a plethora of venues as part of the "service" component of their annual evaluation. Our paper sets forth an example of such faculty involvement in an attempt to improve the decision-making of our incoming students and, as a result, the overall community by providing a presentation to our Freshman Seminar courses on the legal ramifications of poor decision-making as they begin to manage their newfound freedom of choices. In our paper, we point out the pedagological system that we use to emphasize the importance of making the right choices for now, which will clearly have a direct effect upon their future.
