Statement of Purpose
The Institute for Social Responsibility, Ethics and Education (ISREE), as an organized research unit of San Jose State University, is committed to the comprehensive exploration, both scholarly and applied, of ethical and socially responsible practices represented on the campus of San Jose State University and within Bay Area educational, business, professional and civic communities.
Activities of the Institute include, but are not limited to, the following:
Sponsorship of a High Profile Lecture Series
Corporate Roundtables, Seminars, Training Sessions and Workshops
Founded in 1987, the ISREE is a non-profit organization devoted to the study of business and professional ethics, and matters of social responsibility. Since its inception, the ISREE has sponsored a series of lectures each semester that addresses current business, social, political, and health care issues. The series was begun as an adjunct to classes in Administration of Justice, Business, and Philosophy to encourage and support research by faculty, students, and practitioners on issues of social responsibility broadly, and professional and business ethics more specifically. In addition, the ISREE has sponsored conferences on selected topics, established a working paper series, and provided training and workshop seminars on topical issues in social responsibility.
